Beckett Hall


Beckett Hall was completed in the summer of 2007 and named after Cheryl Beckett, an IWU alumna who lost her life serving as a humanitarian aid worker in Afghanistan and the very first IWU Alumni World Changer. Beckett was originally designed to house Freshmen women on the East side and upper-division women on the West side. In Fall 2017 Beckett Hall transitioned to an integrated model, and now houses Freshmen through Seniors on each East and West sides, mirroring our other traditional halls. Beckett students, East and West, benefit from the informal mentoring and peer support that can happen when students at every stage in their college experience share life and learning together. The Beckett women enjoy a beautiful and expansive lobby area that is always the center of activity. Beckett Hall is home to 313 women and mirrors its brother hall, South Hall, which is just across the lawn.

Favorite IWU Tradition:

“My favorite IWU tradition would probably be FNL. I think it is so awesome for students who are passionate about comedy to provide a fun activity for the students on campus.”

Vision For Beckett East: 

“My hope for Beckett East is that every resident will feel like they are home. That they can find good relationships and build great community. We hope that every woman that lives in Beckett East can figure out who she is authentically in her life with friends, God, academics and all areas of life.”

"My desire is for the women of Beckett Hall West to realize the beauty with which God has created them; to grow holistically into women of passion, conviction, and wisdom as they live in community here at IWU and as they prepare to serve a world in need of God's truth and love." While studying at IWU and serving as a student leader I realized my call to work with students through transformational experiences, such as college; thus I began to seek a career in higher education and student development. After two years of post-college Christian evangelism and graduate studies, my husband and I have returned to Indiana Wesleyan. In many ways it feels like we have come home! I could not imagine a better job than to create an environment of spiritual, personal, and professional growth for college students!
