NSU
Students Visit Nicholls State University
Posted on 10/16/2014
The sixth grade class at Gramercy Elementary had the opportunity to tour Nicholls State University. The students were able to see a college campus and get a feel of what it is like to be a college student. Current Nicholls State University students conducted the tour and were very informative. The students were taken around the university to see where classes were held, admissions, housing and recreation. The students were also provided information about other aspects about being a college student such as extra curricular activities, fraternities, sororities, etc. The students really enjoyed the tour and sparked interest in going to college in the future. At the end of the tour most of the students were saying, “I’m going to Nicholls!” One student even stated, “My future is big!” The tour really made a lasting impression on the students and increased the interest in continuing their education beyond high school.   READ MORE...

Gramercy Elementary School will provide a Great Educational Start to ensure all students grow academically and become lifelong learners.
