On campus bookstore services

Neebo (our newly contracted bookstore service) will be on campus the week before classes start as well as the first week of classes.  So, if you haven’t purchased your materials yet, you will be able to do it in person.  They will be set up in the group discussion area of the library (come in the front doors, walk past the reference desk and turn left) they’ll be set up just outside of the big computer lab.  Of course, you can still go to the online store to see what materials are required for your course by going to the website:

If you are going to purchase your textbooks through financial aid, you will need to fill out this form and return it to the business office so they can let Neebo know.

Hours of operation for Neebo will be:

Monday, 8/25: 8:00-4:30
Tuesday, 8/26: 8:00-2:00
Wednesday, 8/27: 8:00-4:30
