Benedictine University’s campus in Mesa will host an open house on Dec. 19 that doubles as a holiday celebration.
From 5 to 7 p.m., community members can share their history with what used to be the Southside Hospital and is now Gillett Hall. District 4 Councilmember Chris Glover will be on hand to host the event.
“We want the community to again experience the historical and personal connection this location has to them,” said Michael Carroll, Mesa branch campus president, in a press release. “We want to show them what of that history we have retained within our academic building, Gillett Hall, and what improvements we have made toward educating their children and perhaps their children’s children as we work together to prepare the next generation of learners and leaders.”
Gillett Hall is located at 225 E. Main Street in Mesa, and more information is available by visiting ben.edu/mesa or calling (602) 888-5533.
