Dr. Sandra Woodley was greeted by GSU officials during the second annual Martin Luther King Jr. Awards ceremony.
Dr. Woodley's visit is part of her tour of colleges within the University of Louisiana System.
Dr. Woodley took over a president of the college system in January.
She's already visited U-L-M; Louisiana Tech is her next stop.
Woodley says these visits are a way for her to get to know the colleges and what challenges they are facing.
GSU band director Dr. Larry J. Pannell pinned Woodley as an honorary band director while head football coach Doug Williams presented Woodley with an autographed twenty fifth most valuable player anniversary football highlighting his win in super bowl 22.
