It’s much more than a cluster of buildings.
Residence life at Taylor is more than that. Halls are intentionally integrated, so underclassmen are living with and learning from upperclassmen and vice versa. In living together, students are exposed to a variety of people and opinions, as well as a host of shared experiences.
The goal is to create an environment that encourages personal and spiritual growth and fosters the basic values of Christian community, such as consideration for others, integrity and self-discipline. Residence Hall staff work to facilitate this growth in partnership with Men's and Women's Programming.
Swallow Robin Hall
One of the oldest buildings on Taylor's campus, Swallow Robin Hall is also rich in tradition. A family atmosphere is readily apparent in this renovated home to 27 men and 43 women.
Student rooms follow a traditional format lining each side of a central corridor. There is a common lounge, kitchen area, study room and television area on the lower level of the residence hall.
The rooms, both double and triple (with the majority of in triple rooms housing freshmen students) are fully carpeted, air-conditioned and furnished with the following for each student:
- a bed
- closet space
Erin Slater, Graduate Director - Swallow Robin Hall
Hi, my name is Erin Slater and I am honored to serve as the Director of Swallow Robin Hall. I graduated from Grace College with a B.S. in Counseling and a minor in Behavioral Science in 2009. While at Grace I was privileged to serve as Student Chaplain for the 2006 academic year. Additionally, I functioned as the Assistant Resident Director of a hall housing 230 women for two and a half years. It was during this time that my interest in Higher Education was fostered.
After spending the past two years working for a Community Mental Health Agency, I decided to pursue my passion for working with college students and will be participating in the Master of Arts in Higher Education program here at Taylor. I am excited about experiencing life with the residents of Swallow Robin and supporting the hall’s familial atmosphere. It is my belief that character is cultivated within the context of relationship. It is my desire that the residents of Swallow Robin have the opportunity to encounter, learn, and practice healthy Christian relationship- with our Savior as well as with others- worth emulating beyond their years at Taylor University.
