My experience at Grambling was definitely a new one to say the least. I enjoyed part of it but also did not enjoy some of the things. The athletes I played with were awesome and the things we did outside of the sport were also fun. The academics department was not too great but they got the job done I guess. Overall it wasnt too bad.
I love Grambling State University there’s no other university I rather attend. Everyone is truly someone here and has the best opportunity to be someone after they graduate.
Truly a place where everybody is somebody. There are staff that are willing to help me with just about anything. I love the friendliness of the people and I feel right at home. They really treat you like family instead of an out-of-state student. There are plenty of things that students can do and plenty of organizations to join. There are is a lot that a person can experience and enjoy.
Grambling State University is a wonderful HBCU. You can meet people from everywhere. There is always an event to help you along the way from being more social to helping you with your studies. There's truly no Fam like Gram Fam.

This is my second semester here at GSU. The college atmosphere here at GSU presents a self assessment test to how dedicated you are to your studies and your future. coming out of high school in New York City, i did not maximize my full potential. i was barely a C student, throughout my high school years i simply coasted through enough just to recieve my diploma. i naively was unaware that what i did in high school would soon greatly affect the next 4-7 years of my life. due to my poor grades, my options of universities was very limited. Grambling State University was the only institution that allowed me to continue my studies, and has allowed me to continue to grow and develope in all aspects of life. i am currently an employee through work study and serve as an associate justice in student government. i am an honor roll student. i am extremely thankful and grateful for the doors that GSU has opened for me and i will continue to push forward and make a life altering path for the betterment of my future! i've gotten exactly what a scholastic institution is supposed to offer.
My school has a unique sense of family and support for students. Expectations are high and students adhere to those expectations. Grambling as a diverse faculty and student population.
This school has its advantages and disadvantages as any school does, however I wish I had know how the financial aid process worked, I would have wanted to know how the rules were enforced and also how the professors approach teaching students in all aspects of the teaching process.
My classmates are okay, most of them look at you crazy and laugh when you say something or ask questions about the lesson that the professor is speaking about at the time. They critisize more than they try to help with is bad.
When I mention my school to my friends, I dote on the fact that it is an HBCU and that it is well distinguished. I tell my friends how I participate in their well established musical program and how I plan to pledge in a sorority on their campus. I like to brag on their many curriculums and the amount of celebrities that have graduated from or is well fond of Grambling. Most importantly, I inform my friends on how Grambling has had a successful football seasons and how they have made their many fans proud.
Graambling State University is hands down best known for the Football Team and the Marching Band. The Band has performed all over the world, at inargural balls, halftime performances for the NFL, and movies, Grambling's World renoun Band is known all across the world.
The worst thing I consider about my school is nothing. Grambling is by-far the best college in my opinion.
The type of person who should attend the school. Is a person with ambition who wants to be something and stand for something in life.
the moto is "Everybody Is Somebody."
Grambling State Univeristy is a place where "Everybody is Somebody" so no matter what is is that you want to to do you can find your fit in Grambling. The campus is beautiful and always brewing with activites to get involved in from fun and games to politics governments, acitivism, performance/visual arts etc. You'll learn alot: the major that you're studying and life/studying skills and you'll also have lots of fun doing it.
The kind of person who shouldn't attend this school is someone who grew up in a city-like environment. The area that my school is in, is very country type and coming here from the suburbs or city location will take a while for someone to really adjust here.
The financial aid process is the most frustrating. The school does not have enough money to help those that need financial help.
Our school is small which is more efficient for more student and teacher interaction and helps students stay focus.
That they are all party animals and very hostile but it actually is not very true. We go to class and do our work just like everyone else. They only look at the very few that we have at our school who cause trouble but rarely
