Its a great collage

Overall Rating:

Takes 6 months to get your degree after numerous phone calls and emails to numerous people. I expect this mediocrity from Tech or UT not here, not impressed. Waiting 6 months for my degree that is not even legal size of 8 by 11 has left a bad taste in my mouth.The bookstore has no customer service in a place where you need to have high priority for customer service. Go anywhere for your books, except this bookstore. They don't care about the college students here that pay their salaries.
