Faculty Turn In Book Requests Early
Results in more used texts available for students

Thanks to the efforts of faculty and staff who turned in their book requests early for the summer and fall during the months of March, April, and May, the University bookstore had more used textbooks than ever before. With more than 44 percent of the requests in hand before the May buy back started, the bookstore was able to pay students 50 percent back on twice as many books as last year. With the increase in used textbooks, they were able to save this fallís incoming students 25 percent off new textbook prices on the largest number of used textbooks to date. The bookstore thanks all who helped make this happen and reminds faculty that by turning in book requests early for the spring semester, they can help students save.

Thank you once again for all your hard work!
