MITCHELL, SD -
Not all South Dakota college students are sweltering as they study.
Nearly all buildings on the campus of Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell have air-conditioning: from classrooms to residence halls.
The school has made a priority of installing air conditioning through the years, and it's paying off during this hot opening week of classes.
“We've made a conscientious effort as we build new facilities to make sure they're climate-controlled and a couple of years ago we upgraded our freshman dorm and allowed for that at the time,” Theresa Kriese Executive Vice President of Dakota Wesleyan said.
Much of the Wellness Center on campus does not have air conditioning. So coaches try to limit the amount of indoor practices and make sure the student-athletes drink plenty of liquids.
