Grambling is a very quiet, safe for walking, very clean. There is nothing to do in Grambling, there is alot of abandoned housing, no large super markets or nightlife. I hope the town improves their night life and basic amenities such as supermarkets and stores and leisure activities, perhaps a gym in the near future.

It has been two years since I've been in the city of Grambling. It is a nice city but there isn't much to do around there for college students despite the fact that is home to the HBCU Grambling State University. However, being at Grambling is what you make out of it honestly. I have had my fair share of fun which isn't much but its something.
Grambling is overall a friendly city. It is very small but the people there are so kind. Although the city isn't that big, this city is more family oriented.
