#GRAMbitionEXCLUSIVE ALL ABOARD! AMTRAK MAKING ITS WAY TO GRAMBLING??

Would you like to travel across the country from right out of Grambling and not have to drive? Well that dream could be a reality real soon. Grambition was on hand for an exclusive meeting with Jim Mathews, the President of the National Association of Railroad Passengers, Christina Anderson(I-20 Corridor Project), Grambling Mayor Edward Jones and the Grambling City Council to discuss bringing Amtrak to Grambling.  This would be a major move for the City of Grambling as well as Amtrak. The proposed plan is to connect the Texas Eagle from Longview, Texas to Jackson, Mississippi along Interstate 20. This has been a 20-plus year project starting with the late Pinkie C. Wilkerson, continuing with former Senator and now Grambling State University President Rick Gallot and will continue with Councilwoman G. Denise Dupree who coordinated yesterday’s visit. This is the 2nd visit to Grambling for Amtrak coordinators, the first being last year’s homecoming football game. This project has been supported by Governor John Bel Edwards whom Mrs. Anderson met last year at homecoming and the Mayors along I-20 including the Mayor of Shreveport and Grambling Alumnus Ollie Tyler. It would be really nice to be able to travel to Chicago, Atlanta, New York and so on for football and many other adventures, business trips and so on and not have to drive at all. It would also be a good thing for students to be able to get home much easier if they do not own their own transportation. So, Mr. Mathews, Mrs. Christina, Amtrak and the rest, Grambling welcomes you all with open arms! #GRAMbition

#GRAMbitionFLASHBACK SEASON OF THE TIGER

Remember when other HBCUs were getting notoriety in the reality television world? Thing is they all fell under BET’s “College Hill” series. Well being that the best college in the world is who it is, BET recognized that we needed our own show apart from the rest. “Season of the Tiger” was birthed. The rest was history. The series featured 5 Grambling students during 2005-2006. The show captured the essence of what Grambling is all about during football season. Even though a few things about the show were scripted. The essence was definitely there. Feeling a little nostalgic? Watch the entire season below and enjoy this trip down memory lane. #GRAMbition

GRAMBLING SGA PRESIDENT ADARIAN WILLIAMS “CAPTIVATING THE PRESENT WHILE INNOVATING THE FUTURE”

You would think that being from Grambling and becoming the new Grambling State University 2017-2018 Student Government Association President would put the pressure on Adarian Williams. It didn’t. He has plans for the upcoming Fall semester to engage the community, university and students as one unit. In other words Adarian did not come to play. Grambition was able to sit down with Adarian briefly and find out what is up his sleeve. Peep the video below, leave comments and keep Adarian encouraged and motivated on this endeavor as he has hands full. We think he will handle it just fine. #GRAMbition
