Welcome to the Joy (proctor) Krautschun Alumni/Foundation Welcome Center.

Since 1883 Black Hills State University has evolved from a frontier normal school to a comprehensive university. As the third largest university in South Dakota, BHSU has taken the next step by providing a home for the thousands of alumni and friends of this University with the Joy Center.

The approximately 4600 sq. ft. Joy (Proctor) Krautschun Alumni/Foundation Welcome Center is dedicated to providing a space for faculty, staff, alumni, business, and community to gather. In addition the Joy Center houses the daily operations of University Advancement.
