South Hall Complex is a mentoring community in which residents are committed to pursuing Christ passionately, challenged to grow holistically, encouraged to support one another daily, and motivated to learn continually.
South Hall Complex East (SHCE) is the all-freshmen wing of South Hall Complex (SHC). Besides a few upperclassmen leaders, every resident in SHCE is experiencing college for the first time, which creates unique and exciting opportunities for community and growth. SHC is classified as a “mentoring hall”; every freshman is intentionally paired with a “mentor” from South Hall Complex West. These relationships are set up to help Eastside residents in their transition to college life, and often include elements of social and interpersonal acclimation and spiritual development.
In order to incorporate the mentoring aspect and to provide identity for the newest residence hall on campus, SHC has chosen an ancient Greek theme. Through events, symbolism and décor, the ancient Greek theme is emphasized and integrated into daily life.
‘My desire is for Eastside residents to grow and develop into men of God prepared for the remainder of college and better equipped for life.’
I came to Indiana Wesleyan University in the fall of 2009 because I wanted to work among collegians during this formational period of their lives. After a great experience at my alma mater, I worked at a small coffee shop and then served as a missionary apprentice in Cambodia. I returned to the U.S. knowing I wanted to help young men develop into the people God desires them to be.

South Hall Complex (SHC) was completed in the summer of 2010. While one building, there are actually two halls in SHC — Eastside for 130 freshman men and Westside for 186 upperclassman men. The hall was built in order to purposefully foster mentoring relationships between first-time and returning students. SHC is part of the East Village and mirrors its sister hall, North Hall Complex.
Volunteering at the Boys and Girls Club is one way the residents of South Hall have reached out to the community. In the past, they’ve also partnered with their sisters at North Hall to coordinate a shoe drive for St. Martin’s Community Center.
