The primary mission of the department of Campus Activities & Student Engagement (CASE) is to provide services, and programs that are positive to students’ developmental needs as well as provide recreational needs of the campus and community. Additionally, CASE programming complements the academic program of study and enhances the overall educational experience of students through the development of, exposure to, and participation in social, cultural, and recreational programs. Through the work of the staff and various student committees, The Favrot Student Union is a “laboratory” where students can learn and practice leadership, programming, social responsibility, and interpersonal skills.

The Favrot Student Union is more than just a building; it is an organized staff of concerned people working to provide the best possible activities. To support the staff in its efforts is the Favrot Student Union Advisory Board, a student organization comprised of six functioning committees (Artistic and Cultural, Featured Attractions, Hospitality, Lagniappe, Traditions, and Publicity).

Through these committees, three-fourths of the campus’ activities are planned and coordinated. Miss Grambling State University and the Royal Court and Miss Cover Girl along with the Calendar Girls are all a part of the Favrot Student Union Board. However, the Favrot Student Union staff and the Favrot Student Union Advisory Board are always open to suggestions, comments and input from the university family, especially our students. Students with an interest or desire to grow socially, culturally, spiritually and philosophically in the views of the University, should join one of these committees.

The Favrot Student Union, located in the center of the University campus, provides a place where students, faculty, staff, alumni and campus guests meet for recreation, socialization, relaxation and extracurricular activities/programs that are educational and enjoyable. The first floor of the Favrot Student Union houses the Tiger Den, a computer lab, Bowling Center (Tiger Lanes) and the Barnes and Nobles University Bookstore. The Game Room is adjacent to the Student Union and has two pool tables and eight flat screen televisions were students can enjoy the Xbox, Wii, and Play Station. The second floor, which is made accessible by stairs or an elevator accommodates all of the offices of Favrot Student Union staff as well as the student leaders of the Favrot Student Union Advisory Board and the Student Government Association, There are five (5) meeting rooms which include the multipurpose room (Black & Gold Room), that are used daily for meetings, conferences, receptions, etc.
