McChesney Hall is located near the north end of campus, near the tennis courts, sand volleyball courts, and intramural field. It is just a short walk from the gym and has parking lots right outside of the dorm. Approximately 120 male students live here each year, made up of all class years. Rooms are arranged in hallway style, with bathrooms in each hallway. McChesney shares a lobby and lounge area with its sister hall, McKinney Hall. McChesney has height adjustable beds.

Spiritual Life at McChesney
Spiritual development/mentoring happens in McChesney through a combined effort between the Resident Director (RD), the Resident Assistants (RAs), and several students on the halls who are in "unofficial" leadership positions. The RD meets with students on a regular basis, but spends a lot of time investing in the RAs to help better equip and challenge them to reach the guys on their hall (2 Tim. 2:2). RAs see to develop community on the hall and organize events like hall meals, bro/sis meals, bro/sis events, hall Bible studies, and others.
Traditions at McChesney
St. Clair and McChesney hold an annual dodgeball tournament and an annual Bro/Sis Battles Competition in combination with their sister halls on campus. A fall Bro/Sis Cookout event takes place to kick off the start to the new school year. Other impromptu weekend mini tournaments take place throughout the year, including things like pingpong and football games. It's also very common that halls will form intramural teams that play together in events like basketball, ultimate, flag football, volleyball, and more.
