Red River Valley University

Red River Valley University

Red River Valley University was a private liberal arts college located in Wahpeton, North Dakota and affiliated with the Methodist Church. The university opened in 1893, and operated independently until 1905, when limited funds forced the closure of the Wahpeton campus. The university's trustees then forged an affiliation agreement with the University of North Dakota (UND), and reopened the school on the UND campus as "Wesley College."

The former Red River Valley University building in Wahpeton still survives, and is known as Old Main on the campus of North Dakota State College of Science. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
