Medesy Hall torn down at Mesa State

Dana Nunn, Mesa State College spokeperson, overlooks the demolition of Medesy Hall Thursday morning. The building is being removed to make an open grassy area next to the new Student Center.

Demolition crews began tearing down Medesy Hall Thursday morning on the campus of Mesa State College. The new space will be landscaped– opening up yet another free space within the center of the campus for students to enjoy.

The 26,000 square foot building was named after Dr. William Medesy, who was president of the college from 1963 to 1970.

Ironically, Medesy oversaw the last big building boom on campus. Tolman Hall, Wubben Hall, Elm Hall, and the Saunders Recreation Center were among the new construction built during the 1960s.

The building originally housed the vocational and technical classes. Most recently it hosted the health science classes and the Little Mavs Learning Center.

Other new construction on campus includes the new Bunting dormitory and nearly completed Student Center.
