President Judson welcomes freshmen to university

Welcome to Grambling State University.It is my extreme pleasure to welcome all new and returning students to Grambling State University for the 2008 fall semester. We are delighted that you have chosen to further your education here and are looking forward to an enjoyable and productive semester.

There are many exciting things that are going on at the institution at this time and will continue throughout the school year. This fall, students are moving into Phase II of student housing, the Freshman Village. Also, construction on the Fine Arts Building is on schedule for occupancy in the 2009 spring semester.

We have enhanced our academic programs in an effort to make sure your academic needs are met with the highest quality and we have improved our security process for your safety.

We believe we are touching the future today through you, our students. We challenge you to work hard and to develop yourselves into the best of whatever you want to be. I congratulate you on your decision to accept that challenge.

Have a great semester and, again, WELCOME. I look forward to seeing you throughout the campus.


Horace A. Judson
