West Hall exterior

West Hall

West Hall is located on the west side of campus near the Stevens Student Center, Fitness Recreation Center, and University Medical Services. It is also close to Murphy, Rickard and Jenkins Halls. There are just over 70 male residents, with a good blend from every class year. West is a hall style dorm with four halls that each have a common lounge room, a laundry room, and community showers and restrooms. There is also Wi-Fi and ethernet connections in every room. There is a courtyard between West, Rickard, and Murphy Halls. West Hall also shares a common co-ed lounge with Murphy and Rickard Halls called the Younger Center. Younger is a great place for residents to hang out with a ping pong table, foosball table, and a pool table. There are also two collaboration rooms for residents to use a place to study and do group projects together.

Community

Spiritual Life at West

There is a collaborative effort by the Resident Director (RD), Resident Assistants (RAs), and other leaders in the halls to lead residents in spiritual growth and maturity. The RD meets with students throughout the week, but focuses a lot of time investing in the RAs to better equip, encourage, and challenge them to pour into the lives of the residents in their halls. The Resident Assistants do this by spending time building intentional relationships and encouraging spiritual growth through events such as hall bible studies, prayer meetings, planning community events, but also through one-on-one discipleship and mentoring.

Traditions at West

Rickard and West's biggest tradition, ManWeek, occurs every fall semester. During the week halls will compete against one another in manly events as well as hosting a few men from the University and local community to come speak to us on a number of topics regarding biblical manhood. Our desire is that every resident will be encouraged and challenged to grow deeper in their walk with Christ (1 Cor. 16:13-14). We are also starting a new tradition with St. Clair and McChesney Halls in an annual flag football game in the spring semester.
