Student Life

Student Activities

Enjoy the Arizona lifestyle: From Sunrise Yoga and YMCA Intra-Collegiate Intramural Sports to Downtown music festivals and 300 days of golfing weather, the City of Mesa provides great opportunities to create experiences and college memories of 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. 

Benedictine will also be able to utilize some of the YMCA’s facilities going forward as it establishes an intercollegiate athletic program. The University will pay the cost for students per semester. 

Faculty and staff can take advantage of a monthly discounted rate.
