Student Life

Student Activities

Enjoy the Arizona lifestyle: From Sunrise Yoga at the YMCA to Downtown music festivals and 300 days of golfing weather, the City of Mesa provides great opportunities to create experiences and college memories for a lifetime. 

YMCA Recreation: The University has entered into an agreement with the Mesa Family YMCA that will allow students, faculty and staff to take advantage of the YMCA’s facilities for its recreation and intramural programs. 

The University covers the full cost of membership for our students!

Campus Community:  Through weekly community time known as BenHour, we bring together campus organizations, community leaders, and our student body for community events that build stronger sense of community through the Benedictine Spirit.

Students have a variety of opportunities to get engaged and build campus life and enrich their own campus experience.  Students can run for office with our Student Senate to serve as the voice of our student body and participate in leadership development opportunities all while representing the concerns of students, encouraging their spirit, and serving to improve the University. 

Intramural sports are offered through the Student Life Office and include team sports such as dodge ball, basketball, and soccer as well as individual competitions such as table tennis or chess.

Finally, a variety of social and academic clubs are organized on campus to provide opportunities to meet like-minded individuals, place what is learned in the classroom into action, and serve the community.  Starting a new club is easy too!  Some of our current clubs* include:

Student Clubs:
     Catholic Student Alliance
     Rotaract
     Otaku

Academic Clubs:
     Nutrition Club
     Criminal Justice Club
     Communications Club
