Capital University Center changes name as it prepares to partner with LATI

PIERRE, S.D.–It’s in the same location in Pierre, but Capital University Center has a new name, a new website and new nursing class offerings.

Capital University Center is now Capital City Campus. Complete with a fresh logo and modernized website,, is set to launch Tuesday.

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.

Capital City Campus will host an open house tomorrow (Tues.) from 3-6pm with a ribbon cutting at 4:30pm. Attendees will get to meet staff from Lake Area Tech, learn more about available classes and see the campus classrooms.

LATI Vice President Diane Stiles says they’re excited to partner with Capital City Campus to increase access to medical training in central South Dakota. Offering programs locally allows students to balance furthering their education with their current careers and family lives.
