    Student queries can be addressed in a more organized and transparent way. The management and other staff could work responsibly. The hardworking students can be recognized better. Shuttle service can be improved. Bicycles should be available in the campus. As the university is too vast, it's almost impossible without a vehicle. Hostel and good can be better, because we are literally have no option rather than choosing it. Though students are okay to spend more money for better services.
