DAKOTA STATE COLLEGE. Madison, South Dakota 57042 (605) 256- 3551. Dakota Normal School was established in Madison, South Dakota, by a legislative act of May 5, 1881. Charles B. Kennedy, a Madison businessman, donated twenty acres of land as the site for the college. Classes began on December 5, 1883, with eleven students under Charles S. Richardson as president ( 1883-1887). Beadle Hall was erected in 1886. The name was changed to Madison State Normal School in 1902 during the administration of William Henry Harrison Beadle (BDAE), president from 1889 to 1905. Kennedy and East halls were built in 1904 and Women's Gymnasium in 1910. John William Heston was president from 1905 to 1920. Under Edgar Creighton Higbie ( 1920- 1931) the school was named Eastern State Normal school in 1921 and Eastern State Teachers College in 1927.

Lowry Hall and Memorial Gymnasium were built in 1958 during the presidency of Vayne Arnold Lowry ( 1933-1962). Further name changes were General Beadle State Teachers College in 1947 and General Beadle State College in 1964. Smith- Zimmermann Museum, a historical museum funded by the state, was added to the campus in 1961. In 1969 the college became Dakota State College. There are seventeen buildings on the fifty-six-acre campus, including Beadle Hall, Kennedy Hall, East Hall, and C. Ruth Habeger Science Center ( 1972) classroom buildings; Women's Gymnasium; Karl E. Mundt Library ( 1968); Trojan Center student union ( 1965); Heston Hall administration building; and four residence halls.
