To better serve the people of the Oglala Lakota Nation, Oglala Lakota College has a college center in each of its nine districts throughout the Pine Ridge Reservation. There is also a college center in Rapid City, South Dakota, which serves the needs of urban native and non-native students. It is located 88 miles from Piya Wiconi and is now our largest center with a recent enrollment of 450 students. In 2005 Oglala Lakota College was asked to establish a college center in Eagle Butte, South Dakota, to serve the needs of the people on the Cheyenne River Reservation. There are now 11 college centers providing college classes to students on the Pine Ridge Reservation, the Rapid City area, and the Cheyenne River Reservation, and our enrollment numbers continue to grow with each new semester.
