Happy New Year, and a hearty welcome to our new and returning students to Grambling State University for the 2013 Spring Semester! It is going to be an exciting year, and I hope you will catch the excitement.
I am excited about working with you, seeing you around campus as you go about your daily routine and, with the help of the university faculty, staff and administrators, helping you achieve your goal of a higher education. I encourage you to study hard, stay focused on your goals and pursue them with determination and tenacity. Take advantage of any and all opportunities to serve your fellow man and, thus, create a campus community conducive to learning and sharing.
Again, welcome! With all of us working together, I know that 2013 will be another successful year for you at Grambling State University.
Frank G. Pogue, Ph.D.
