Stephanie Pocsi

Graduate Hall Director

Stephanie Posci PhotoStephanie joins the VSU team after graduating from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Development and Learning. After realizing that college students have a lot in common with preschoolers she decided that working with college students was her passion. She will be pursuing her Master's degree in Higher Education Student Affairs while working as the Residence Hall Director of Centennial Hall.

Stephanie is also an avid reader, currently trying to digest the Song of Fire and Ice series. She is also a painter but doesn't claim to have much talent. You may find her doing a variety of activities as long as she is surrounded by people who love to laugh, have a bit of fun and are passionate about creating social change.

Eric Petersen

Complex Director

Eric PetersenEric came to Valdosta State in May of 2014 after working at Rockhurst University in Kansas City, MO and Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, GA.  Originally from the Kansas City area, he received his B.A. in Spanish from Truman State University and his M.S. in College Student Personnel Administration from the University of Central Missouri.  In his role as Complex Director, he is excited to be supervising the Residence Hall Directors in Georgia, Reade, Langdale, and Converse.

Aside from working in Higher Education, Eric is starting to learn the Valdosta area and find ways to get connected to the community.  Eric loves to cook and try new foods, so you might find him at the Farmer’s Market or a new restaurant on the weekends.  He also enjoys bowling and golfing (though he’s not very good at either) and is also a big movie fan.  If you have any questions or just want to chat, please don’t hesitate to send him an email or swing by his office in Langdale Hall!
