South Hall East | Male

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 closer to Christ as they live, learn, and experience the ups and downs of life in a supportive environment.'

I was a weekly church-goer, but it wasn't until my mid-teens that I took full responsibility for my faith. During these formative years, many leaders cared and invested in me. I began to develop a strong passion for serving others within the church and discovered my passion for worship ministry. Through college I continued learning how to effectively lead and love God's people and had opportunities to practice. Through personal experience I know how crucial these college years are in developing into the person God created us to be.

  • Hometown: South Lyon, MI
  • Colleges Attended: Spring Arbor University
  • Degree: B.A. in Worship Ministry
  • Best ResLife memory: Riding around campus late at night with my 3 closest friends/roommates rollerblading. I was being pulled by my friend on a bike, all while I wore a Darth Vader mask. Long story short, we rode around campus for hours dying of laughter, making jokes, yelling, and cracking up. We were all incredibly sore that next day...
  • Best thing about my job: The opportunity to witness and play a part in the growth and maturity of freshman students throughout the course of the academic year.
  • Best thing about IWU: The amount of support IWU gives to prevent anyone from "falling through the cracks". The Mentoring Program in South Hall shows how much emphasis IWU places on intentionally providing safe and comfortable environments for students to live, laugh, and learn.
