A college dormitory has opened for Benedictine

students in downtown Mesa.

School officials were joined by the project developers, city and community leaders, nearby business owners and curious passers-by for a Feb. 7 ribbon cutting and dedication of the college’s dormitory on Macdonald Street.

Rico the Redhawk, Benedictine’s mascot, hopped and danced around and Benedictine students led tours through the historic building.

The dorm is in the former Alhambra Hotel, a 123-year-old building that opened as the Pioneer Hotel in 1984. Most recently, it was a transitional housing facility.
