  • The student centre staff are totally incompetent & unable to give intelligent answers. Good luck getting a coherent answer for anything! The clerks at the student centre think they'd exist without academics & students! They give the university a terrible name. One star is too generous, they need a minus 5 stars.
  • This place is wonderful, I love this place very much and hope that it will be always open! Suggested to people who love this shop, please visit it! Its an experience that cant be missed! This shop is open most of the days so if you have time, just drop by to help them.
