Grambling prepares for annual High School Day

Choosing a college or university can be a stressful time in high school, so Grambling State University wants to make this decision a little easier by inviting all high school students to come to campus on Saturday for its annual High School and Transfer Day. 

The day will be filled with a number of activities, all aimed for potential Gramblinites. 

Activities will include campus tours, access to top-rated faculty and staff, meeting Miss GSU and the Student Government Association, and the football game between the G-Men and Alcorn State University. 

“I think High School Day is important for Grambling because students get a taste of GSU life gives them and it’s important they see the family that Grambling is when they decide which college is best for them. 

“They will be able to see the various organizations and the interactions amongst college students,” said Kourtney Rodgers, a junior nursing student from Dallas, GSU cheerleader, and member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. 

Students will truly get to understand why Grambling is a place where everybody is somebody!” 

Grambling wouldn’t be itself without providing entertainment for potential students and their parents. The day will consist of performances by the World Famed Tiger Marching Band, the nationally ranked cheerleaders, Orchesis Dance Company, modeling troupes, and Greek Organizations. 

“I want students to leave in awe saying ‘I want to go to Grambling’ and experiencing all things that we have to offer,” said Keenan Cowan, a senior business management major and president of the Favrot Student Union Board. 

My role in High School Day is showing and telling my personal love for my HBCU, and telling the students how they can make a difference as a Tiger.” 

High School and Transfer Day has been a tradition at GSU. The event gets high school students excited for their potential life as a Tiger, and a chance to see why GSU is the university “Where Everybody is Somebody!”
