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; she was honored as 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 throughout the building, mirroring our other traditional halls. Beckett students 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.

Vision for Beckett Hall:

“Our motto in Beckett has been, "Locally grown & fully known." This means that we recognize that we are raised by the people we live with and we take the responsibility of helping our neighbors grow very seriously! We also recognize that the Lord is the only one who can fully know who we are at our core. As his children, we are called to do our best to see those around us and come to know them as the Lord knows them.

I desire for the women of Beckett to support one another on this academic journey by committing to growing alongside each other and by seeking to know each other as their father in heaven knows them.”

Favorite IWU Tradition:

“My favorite IWU tradition is Wildcat Week! It's so fun to watch students bond over a little hall competition at the beginning of the year!"
