After a week of non-stop events to celebrate its Dakota Wesleyan University’s 125th anniversary, tired alumni are headed home. It was quite a party.
“We had alumni from 32 states here this week,” emcee Don Jorgensen told the cheering crowd Saturday night at the Corn Palace. Recently named South Dakota Broadcasters Association’s “Broadcaster of the Year,” Jorgensen, Class of ’87, was a member of the football team during his years at Wesleyan.

“Y.M.C.A.” is a classic song that has maintained its popularity and sparked the interest of generations of fans.
The group that sings it, the Village People, is also popular for hits “Macho Man,” “Can’t Stop the Music” and “Go West” and their costumes — a Native American, police officer, biker, construction worker, soldier and cowboy.
Thirteen years after their last appearance in Mitchell, the band behind such hits as “YMCA,” “Macho Man” and “In The Navy” will return to the city.
Lori Essig, vice president of university relations for Dakota Wesleyan University, announced Friday morning that the Village People will perform during the college’s Blue and White Bash on Oct. 2 at the Corn Palace.
Dakota Wesleyan University announced today that the Village People will play at the Blue and White Bash this fall.
The concert will be the "culminating event" of DWU's 125th anniversary celebration, according to Lori Essig, vice president of university relations.
