Grambling State University Reviews
What I like about Grambling most is that everybody is truly somebody. You can change everything about you and be whomever you desire to be. Another great aspect is the culture of my school. Our band and football team ring bells. There's no better place to be than Grambling during homecoming season! The amount of support that my school has amazes me. While all of these things are great, it only gets better! Every year, thanksgiving weekend is the bayou classic held in New Orleans where we play against our rivalry school Southern University! As far as the school it's very historic. The staff members are always there to help you. They might be rude but they'll help you. I can honestly say that I haven't gotten the full college experience due to me working at least 2-3 jobs as a full-time student. I'm hoping that my last year here (Fall 17-Spring 18) that I'd be able to work less days but somehow cover my bills so that I can get that college experience my last year here. Overall I love it
Grambling is an HBCU and an overall great place to study. It has a very active social climate. The school is very supportive of it’s football team and marching band, and there are numerous student organizations that organize student activities. The lecturers make it really easy to learn, and they are super kind. My favorite thing about Grambling is that there is always somone/ organization there to help. There is a career services office that helps with everything career related; from building your resume to assisting with finding internships, to mock interviews ! The area around the university is practically dead. There is nothing to do outside the school. The nearest grocery store is 15 mins (drive) away. This works to your advantage because it makes the environment more conducive to learning . Otherwise, there is a police station, church and fast food express on campus. I would recommend Grambling to anyone who is serious about learning.
Greek life is a big part of this campus atmosphere. The most popular Greeks are Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, and the Omega's or "Q dawgs"...these are major African American greeks that surround themselves with sorority brothers and sisters and represent their membership to its fullest! The campus has step shows and line crossings for the public to attend but no housing arrangements on campus. Most alumni pledged early on in school and associate with new members. These greeks will persuade you to join a sorority or fraternity because they show their pride and knowledge of their institution and make it look fun and interesting.
