DWU Science Center Building Dedicated

Dakota Wesleyan University dedicated its new $11.5 million Glenda K. Corrigan Health Sciences Center on Thursday.  The center was made possible by five million dollar donations from Fritz and Glenda Corrigan of Edina, Minnesota and Paul and Donna Christen of Huron.  The four-story, 48,000-square-foot building features chemistry, biology, research and nursing simulation labs, as well as classrooms for nursing, athletic training, sciences and mathematics.  The event featured a formal dedication at the Sherman Center.  Guests were then led through Jackson Plaza to the science center.  A formal ribbon cutting was followed by a picnic-style meal in the east main dining room, moved from outside because of the hot temperatures.
