Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus, if we're in danger we usually get a text message or some kind of warning to let us know if we're in danger on campus.

Greek Life: Being that Grambling is a HBCU the fraternities and sororities are African American. Greeks as in alpha kappa alphas, delta sigma theta, omega "Ques", and many more. The Greek life is very noticeable at every event, especially when the Greeks begin to stroll. The Greeks do not have a specific housing at Grambling but that does not stop them from doing what needs to be done as Greeks

Athletics: Grambling is a school where it makes you want to be involved in what's going on in athletics, like attending games and having the overall gramfam spirit. The football and baseball teams are great however the men's basketball team need some help or a bit more practice other than that athletics are very much so important.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Grambling State University is a wonderful school to attend. The atmosphere and the many events on campus get each and every student involved in the social life. The professors are great at encouraging a student to be great in everything they decide to do and do it to the best of their abilities. I'm proud to be apart of GramFam!

4 College Senior

Greek Life: 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.

Athletics: The football team is most popular among the campus. Every year there is a game against Southern University called the Bayou Classic held in Baton Rouge that almost everyone from the surrounding areas attend. There is a battle of the bands and halftime show with the GSU cheerleading and dance team that gets Grambling the famous recognition it has held throughout the years.

Health & Safety: As far as sexual assualt I have not heard any cases about it, but like I said security need to be more enforced on campus. My room got broken in to twice and I ask campus police to check the cameras they told me they didnt work. So someone got away with a 40 inch Tv. How is that not easy to spot Idk ask them.

Grambling State University is an accredited HBCU that is full of opportunities—you just have to be ready take advantage of them. The University has a good academic reputation and an influx of companies—including IBM, Tyson, and Wal-Mart—come to recruit students annually. These companies offer internships, as well as full-time positions to students who fit their requirements. The social life at Grambling State is satisfactory. There are several party venues, and Plush is 5 minutes from campus. Other than that, the Yard is always a fun place to be between classes. You’ll regularly see the fraternities and sororities hanging out on the Yard and there will sometimes even be a stroll off. There are dorm parties every weekend, as well as off-campus parties. However, sometimes you’ll need to drive a bit, so a car is a necessity.

Some people say Grambling State is horrible because of its location, but if you know the right people who can tell you where all the fun is and if you have a form of transportation, you’ll be fine. The overall experience is good and acceptable for a university of its size. There are wonderful experiences just waiting for you to explore them.
