Messina Hall is named after University of Messina located in Messina, Italy. Founded in 1548 by St. Ignatius of Loyola, the University of Messina was the first Jesuit College in the world. About 35,000 students study at this institution situated on the Northeast tip of Sicily between the mountains and the Strait of Messina across from the tip of mainland Italy.
