Grambling State University, founded in 1901, is a public university. GSU has national, regional, and local employers recruit graduates from Grambling's excellent programs in nursing, computer science, teacher education, the arts, and other academic areas. In the year of 1905 the school moved to its current location. This year the name of the school was also changed to North Louisiana Agricultural and Industrial School. Later on in 1946 it was named Grambling College. It wasn't until 1976 once the school got more graduate programs that the school was named Grambling State University. GSU merges the academic strength of a major university with the benefits of a small college. It offers more than 800 courses and 68 degree programs in five colleges, including an honors college, two professional schools, a graduate school, and a Division of Continuing Education.
