Grambling State University Reviews
Grambling "Is the place where Everybody is Somebody". The environment is great and the teachers are really there to help you. If you're a minority, especially black, then this is the school for you! The teachers actually take the time out of their busy schedule to have hands on in helping you with whatever you may need. Over 90% of the students that attend graduate and then not only get jobs, but careers. The whole purpose of college is to graduate and do something in the field that you love. The President is really nice and down to earth. All in all, it's a great environment and I wish more people would attend.
I am going into my sophomore year at THE Grambling State University. So far, I am absolutely loving my time at my HBCU. I have completed my first year on the Orchesis Dance Company under the direction of Diane Maroney-Grigsby. My education here is so informative as well. I am thoroughly enjoying my professors and everything they have to offer. Our athletics, fine arts and other organizations are exceptional and even our food options are great! I am so proud to be a Tiger at THE Grambling State University and I am ready to see what the future has in store for me.
As an International Student, I can most definitely say that attending Grambling thus far is truly an amazing experience. Grambling State University is a highly acclaimed school with great academic reports and a historically black college that embodies young African American men and women on successful paths. I chose to attend this school because I like being part of a large group and diverse student body. The Lecturers at this University care about the students and they are very helpful. Grambling State University just feels like home while it gives you a great feeling of school pride. The only thing I would like to see change here at the university is that there should be more opportunities for international students. With just more help to secure that perfect internship during your academic school year.
