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.

Vision for Beckett East:

“My vision for Beckett East is that residents find a space to engage in the learning process through hall and unit programs, relationships with peers, support from student leaders, and the community within the hall. My hope is that these experiences and opportunities point them towards a deeper relationship with God.”

Vision for Beckett West: “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."

Favorite IWU Tradition: “Wildcat Week is a week-long campus-wide event at the beginning of the year. Students can participate in friendly competitions with other halls while bonding with their own! As a student, Wildcat Week was a great opportunity for me to junk into my new community. As a staff member, I am able to help students do the same through this fun event!”
