Hughes Hall
Hughes Hall was built in 1912 as Science Hall and is one of the last of the original campus buildings. It was renamed Hughes Science Hall in honor and memory of Dr. Clifford Hughes, who was a graduate of the university, and used to house all science classes on campus. Many classes are still held in Hughes, primarily history, communication and theatre. The name of the building became Hughes Hall (sans science) after the Glenda K. Corrigan Health Sciences Center was opened in 2013, moving all science classes to the new facility.

Patten-Wing Theatre and the Equitem Theatre-in-the-Round are also in Hughes, as well as the Snackpack Program, a non-profit program in Mitchell that provides weekend lunches for elementary students and is spearheaded by DWU alumna Cindy Novachich '90 and assisted by the DWU club Enactus.
Dakota Wesleyan University was named to the 2013 President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. This designation is the highest honor a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, service-learning and civic engagement.
Dakota Wesleyan University is proudly affiliated with the Dakotas Conference of the United Methodist Church. Members of any and all faiths are welcome and encouraged to experience an education based on learning, leadership, faith and service.
Dakota Wesleyan University has been honored as a College of Distinction through demonstration of excellence in these areas: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities and successful outcomes.
