PeoplePoll: How have the prices of textbooks affected how you purchased them this semester?

“I purchased them on Amazon.com I got them so much cheaper.”
Ashley Watkins
sophomore
art major

“I buy them online where-ever I can get them cheapest. Some places will let you rent them for free, but definitely not the bookstore unless it’s absolutely needed.”
Dario Samtillan
sophomore
undecided major

“A lot, because textbooks are rather expensive, so when you go and purchase a textbook after you get your refund when you first get some money, it digs into your pockets a little bit. It makes you want to order them online.”
Mike Law
junior
music major

“I think that not all the textbooks are necessary because a lot of teachers that I have don’t use the textbooks at all, so I think they should let people know, like, if they’re going to be teaching out of their book or they’re going to be teaching from their own PowerPoint or slides or whatever.”
Rodriquez Huff
freshman
speech communication major

“I think they should stop doing the binder thing because nobody likes the binders, nobody wants the loose leaf books that cost $150 that we can’t get any money back from at the end of the year.”
Jack Stokes
sophomore
