Buy or Rent Textbooks from the Campus Bookstore

Summer Campus TourCollege campus bookstores are beginning to buzz with activity as they prepare for the onslaught of students arriving later this month.

I visited three Virginia universities in the last ten days, wrapping up college tours with my teenage daughters.  All tours ended with a bookstore visit.  My girls shopped in the apparel section while I headed to the textbook area.Rental Textbook Removable Sticker

I contemplated if the book buying “rush” I remembered from my college days still existed due to the rise of non-university affiliated book sellers? Students can now arrive on campus with their textbooks in hand, often purchased from Amazon or another online bookseller.

But as I reflected on the high volume of removable stickers we sell at the beginning of each semester to college bookstores for their rental and used book inventory, I realized that campus bookstores have made considerable headway in keeping their textbooks on campus.  Removable stickers such as those shown on the left help drive Textbook Buy Back Sticker Red Borderthat initiative.

When my daughters head off to college next fall, I will encourage them to rent or purchase used books from the campus bookstore, especially if the bookstore is independently owned and operated by the college.  This decision is more than just about supporting the school.

Navigating the fall book rush is a rite of passage. Ordering books at home with a parent monitoring the online purchase just doesn’t equate.  Sure, you might save a few dollars but at eighteen, your “child” needs to learn independence.  Let your college student locate the textbooks he/she needs for the upcoming semester and decide whether to rent or buy based on price and availability. Give your child and the local campus bookstore a chance to demonstrate a win/win partnership that ultimately saves you money (especially when they help prevent your student from buying the wrong edition of a textbook!).

College learning doesn’t just take place in the classroom.  Piloting the textbook rush is an essential skill.
