I liked that Grambling was in a small town and is a small school. I like the history department because they help me in any way they can from assignments to internships.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Students should be aware that Grambling is an open campus and if you are vegan or vegetarian there are limited options in the dining hall. Overall Grambling is a good school.

At Grambling State University, I would rate my education experience as a 9. I like the diversity of my professors and their teaching methods. I do enjoy my classes and the pace that most of them move. I have made mistakes, but will still be finishing the semester with A's and B's. Come on down to the G for a good time and a good education.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

At Grambling State University, I like everything for the most part. I will say the food could be better, the organization of things could be better, and the wi-fi connection in learning spaces could be better. Also, I wish there was a place we could go study on campus while the library is under construction.

Grambling State University is a place where you can make friends within the first week of arriving. I was so happy to meet the people I met, and even to this day as well as while we're away on break, I'm still in contact with those people and we're continuing to make life-long/long-lasting memories.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I will say, the campus is not the prettiest. Grambling state university is located in Grambling, LA, not Ruston as many people believe. With that being said, you would have to make the 8-10 minute drive to Ruston in order to get some things. We only have a dollar general close by, and a few gas stations. Ruston has way more but it's still not a lot, or at least not what I'm used to being from Shreveport.
