There is no one way to define a "good" college or university. Admissions criteria, acceptance rate and average GPA are good indicators of how competitive an institution is, but they don't tell you how happy or successful students are. There are a few statistics that can give you a good idea of how satisfied students are and how well a school supports its students.
Let's take a look at to get a better sense of what Grambling offers and if it could be a good choice for you.

Retention is the number of students that stay enrolled at a school over time. This is a way to get a sense of how satisfied students are with their school experience, and if they have the support necessary to succeed in college.

An endowment is the total value of a school's investments, donations, and assets.

Grambling's endowment was valued at $6.8 million in 2021, compared to a national average of $905 million. For each full-time student, Grambling spends about $4,760 a year.
Cost is another important factor when choose a college. Some colleges may have high tuition, but do a better job at meeting students' financial need. First-year students that attend Grambling full-time are awarded $10,848 a year in financial aid, on average.
