Grambling State University Reviews
Review Grambling State University
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
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.
Grambling State University is a fairly large campus where we take pride in our motto, "where everybody is somebody." From the student to the staff we treat each as family no matter the the color, shape or size; We are one! We take pride and support in our athletic team win or lose, and we party hard, win or lose. We are known nation wide for a wide range of things. Grambling teaches their students where they come from, self value and most important prepares you for the real world.
