“Yes, Grambling has helped me become the woman I am today. Grambling State University has given me a safe place to be unapologetically black.  Learning from professors who look like me encourage me to put my best foot forward in my Academics.”

“When I have children of my own, I definitely will push for Grambling because I want to start my own legacy. Grambling holds a special place in my heart for heritage and family. I want my children to experience that. If not Grambling, I will definitely push for a HBCU in general!”

“I would recommend Grambling State University to my kids based off the life experiences I have learned while attending the school. The education Grambling has gave me has propelled me into a scholarly person beyond school itself. I have became an entrepreneur developing businesses for myself and others and for those reasons I’m able to take care of people more than just myself. Grambling State University has gave me purpose!”

“If I have children they will go to Grambling. Why? Because it’s the best HBCU and at Grambling ‘Everybody Is Somebody’ simple as that.”
