4 College Freshman

Administration: When we have policies in the area it makes the campus a safer place. Now that I know the the campus is safe I really enjoy living on campus.

Campus Food: When we go to the cafe we have different things that we can eat. Also, the food be hot when you get your plate. I like that its a buffet style and you can have as much as you want.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The school is very strict on a lot of things but in my opinion I think they should be more lenient with cooking appliances.

Local Area: Small towns so every one knows each other. There are plenty of shopping centers around the town. Safety is not a major issue around here.

Scholarships: Financial aid took longer than ever, and they lose half of the information you give them.

Health & Safety: Grambling campus is always a safe place to be, because there is always a police riding around.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties at my school is okay, because they get shut down pretty early because of rental cops, come messing with us by shooting for no reason. But the best parties take place in Ruston,Monroe, they are mostly SUSLA parties. Every one have fun, so I'm guessing they have a positive impact on the students, and there is also positive feedback.

1 College Freshman

Local Area: It's the worst where i go to school at because we are in the country, which means there are always spiders,lizards and other sort of bugs found in my dorm. There aren't much to do here also, because we are in the country, like shopping. The only thing i do is workout and that is about the only thing there is to do and go to anything is held about sports.For ex. "basketball, football,softball,baseball,and volleyball." no one really likes soccer.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Some people may think it's the worst because they are very strict. We can only have visitors in our room to 12am-12pm, we can only cook in a microwave, if we have any complaints we talk to our R.A.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining near my school is okay. It's like everyone is trying to make a profit in business. The burgers are 5 dollars, haircuts are 20. other stores are reasonable.

1 College Freshman

Majors: To begin with, to get into the program at my school is very difficult. They lose your information, and care less about helping you until the last minute. Yes, they get applications pretty fast, and also respond pretty fast. I encountered many challenges throughout getting registered and being here. As you can see, with that being said they should do better, and communicate more with "us" students.

4 College Student

Local Area: With all the big towns around us, things are always fun. If you seek out something, you're bound to find it.

4 College Student

Athletics: Athletics are going to be a big part of every college but I think that my campus is very athletic and that everyone supports everybody through everything.

4 College Student

Majors: I am in love with music so I love my major.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: If i find somewhere off campus that i like to eat, i'll keep eating there.

4 College Student

Administration: I love the administration. They're very helpful when i need them.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: No post-secondary place is going to have a great health and safety factor but ours definitely isn't the worst.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
