PIERRE, S.D. (DRG News) – It’s in the same location in Pierre (925 East Sioux Avenue), but Capital University Center has a new name, a new website and new nursing class offerings.

He says the new name comes with a fresh logo and modernized website,, which is set to launch Tuesday.

CUC was founded in 1982– 38 years ago.

Lake Area Tech in Watertown plans to begin providing its Licensed Practical Nursing and Associate of Applied Science in Registered Nursing programs at Capital City Campus this fall, pending approval (from the SD Board of Nursing and Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing).
