Rental Center Testimonials
From Andy Gaddis
I'm so thankful I learned what you guys do in there last winter. We were in Muncie for BSU baseball camp and just kinda stumbled into your area. What a great offering / service for students, my kids and I. As a heads up Andrew did a great job for you. Represented himself, your office and the university very well. Be sure to give him an atta boy at some point. His partner was great too, but I failed to note his name. Andrew was obviously easy for me (Andrew).
