Charlene Stenson
Director, Enrollment Services
Phone 701-845-7105

I’m Charlene Stenson, director of Enrollment Services.

Working with students seems to be the area that continually directs me down life’s path. I began with teaching elementary education for 13 years and coaching girls basketball and boys and girls track and field. So recruiting students just seemed a natural fit 15 years ago when I started in the Enrollment Services Office as an admission counselor.

As a VCSU graduate myself, I’m proud to be promoting this university as it continually implements strong academic programs and produces outstanding graduates who succeed in such a competitive world. 

I encourage you to see for yourself why Valley City State University is a great place to receive your education. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have or set you up with a campus visit.

Kaleen Peterson
Assistant Director, Enrollment Services
Phone 701-845-7115

Hi, I’m Kaleen Peterson, and I started as an admission counselor at VCSU in 2011.

I earned my undergraduate and law degrees from the University of North Dakota, but I am originally from Valley City, so moving back to the town where I want to raise my family was important to me.

I enjoy showcasing the personal atmosphere at VCSU as well as what the city of Valley City has to offer you.  My favorite thing about my job is helping students and parents navigate the admissions process so they are comfortable and knowledgeable once they get to campus. I would love to visit with you about VCSU!
