Additionally, the artist talk will take place on Sept. 21 at 3:30 p.m. in the Center for the Arts Choir Room (Room 177). A reception will follow in the Center for the Arts Lobby until 5:30 pm.

VCSU Football opens season with win The Paint Bucket is back in Valley City. Valley City State scored 20 points in just seven minutes of game play during the second and third quarters Thursday night, turning an 8-0 deficit into a 23-15 victory over rival University of Jamestown.

Under the lights of Lokken Stadium, the first college football game in the nation and the 124th meeting between the Vikings and Jimmies did not disappoint. With a standing-room only crowd of close to 3,000 fans ringing the field, the teams wrote another intense chapter for the rivalry’s history as Valley City State’s mid-game offensive outburst and a late defensive stop secured the Viking win.

“This was an unbelievable, great college atmosphere tonight,” said VCSU head coach Dennis McCulloch. “To celebrate in that end zone, there’s nothing like it. What a great victory.”
