“We see this new facility as an information beacon on a hill,” said President Rick Gallot of Grambling State, on gram.edu. “We are grateful to the students, University of Louisiana System, the Board of Regents, our Governor and the legislators who are collaborating to make this vision a reality for our campus.”
