    Other than switching to another title or going 100% digital (if possible) is the only way to avoid the consignment rentals. Jeremy Johnson Executive Director p: 470-578-3936 | f : 470-578-9332 e: jjohn446@kennesaw.edu w: CampusServices.kennesaw.edu ... Read More

    We do allow 18-wheelers on campus - and they are here for deliveries each day. When we know something is coming - like a large furniture delivery - we work with the shipper to let them know the challenges of delivering to an urban environment with a 53 foot truck with a large sleeper cab. many of our daily deliveries are in smaller trucks - pup's or ...
