Valley City State University President Steven Shirley had little trouble acknowledging the schoolâs recent success Monday, when he addressed students, faculty and community members during his annual State of the University address at Vangstad Auditorium. But that didnât keep him from looking to the near future.
âTo use the term âcrossroadsâ too often becomes cliche,â he told the crowd. âHowever, I sincerely believe we are at a crossroads at Valley City State University, and with this crossroad, we have a unique opportunity to transform our educational offerings.â

Out on the prairie my Husband and me.
Are stuck in a our cabin with a very urgent plea.
We have no place to go ânot family at least.
To sit and enjoy a good turkey feast.
Now truth be told weâre really quite quirky.
So you shant put it past us that weâd eat something other than turkey.
Pizza Dave makes a frozen pepperoni to boast.
And itâs not beyond me to just eat some garlic toast.
My burly husband deserves something much more inviting.
We wish a church was serving food-it would be well worth the tithing.
Those church ladies can cook this is for certain.
