The Townhouses are an area where upper-classmen are given the opportunity to build intentional relationships within the apartments as well as within the city of Marion. Residents experience purposeful community while learning a sense of independence.
The Townhouses are two story, apartment style buildings with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Common areas in the Townhouses include a full-sized kitchen, living room, and a washer/dryer area.
The Community Center, the Townhouse “front desk,” is the place for residents to gather and fellowship. In the Community Center is a front desk, computer access, table seating, a fireplace area, an exercise room, as well as a television viewing seating area. Both the South and North Townhouse Resident Directors have offices in the Community Center.
‘I view the residence hall as an extension of the classroom. As students develop holistically, their learning outside of the classroom should be as intentional and earnest as their learning inside of the classroom.’
Upon graduating from Taylor University, I worked as a high school English teacher for three years. I then transitioned into a part-time residence director position, where I discovered my desire to work with college students. I went on to pursue a Master’s in Higher Education and began working at IWU in the fall of 2009. I am passionate about fostering formative experiences and am thankful for how I am continually developed and stretched by the students with whom I work.

The Townhouses were originally built in 1998 to offer a different option in residential housing, acclimating students to more responsibility and independence. The Townhouses work to foster community both internally between residents and externally with our Marion neighbors.
The North and South Townhouses hold an annual Block Party with the Marion community. Events include live music and catered food as well as prizes. Events for children include face painting and yard games. The Block Party is free to the public as well as IWU students/faculty/staff.
