Sisseton Wahpeton College building new auditorium

SISSETON, S.D. -- A building under construction at Sisseton Wahpeton College will include an auditorium big enough to keep graduation ceremonies on campus.

Development Director Pam Wynia said a $3 million federal grant will cover most of the cost.

The college in northeast South Dakota usually holds graduation ceremonies at its casino.

Wynia said the auditorium can be used for other community events and as an emergency shelter when people lose heat and electricity during winter storms.
