Remarks -

College management should focus on quality and taste of food serve and should also increase the time limit one can spend out of the college. As we do have coaching so 7 pm is too early for us. Overall college is good and I feel lucky to have myself in it . I think collegespeak should personally give me a call I really have some good suggestions.
