Grambling State University is the best HBCU there is! It has a great atmosphere and the Criminal Justice degree program. It makes me feel right at home and it has the best school pride in Louisiana!
Alexandria from Mather, PA
Great school with a diverse student body. This school has good standards, to ensure that students are motivated to do their best. GSU is located in a quiet city with stores and activities only a short drive away.
