Business Services eUpdate, January 2016

Business Services eUpdate — January 2016



Inclusive Access

This semester, the Bookstore unveiled a pilot program with a select group of classes. The Inclusive Access program is a new textbook model in collaboration with top publishers that seeks to provide timely course materials to all students at the lowest possible price. All students in a class buy into the content, lowering the cost for everyone. All students in that class also get access to the content on the first day, and won’t be billed on their student account until after the tenth day of class. The program is part of the Bookstore’s ongoing efforts to provide the best materials at the most affordable prices.

If you have any questions, contact DJ Garcia.

UMW Book Club

The Boys in the Boat has been selected for the next meeting, to be held on Wednesday, January 20 at 12 p.m. in the Bookstore. Contact Margaret Mock via email or at (540) 654-1652 if you would like to join us.

Stress Buster Coloring

During Fall Finals week, the Bookstore sponsored a Stress Buster coloring table as a fun way for students to enjoy some down time between exams. The event was well-received. A few students even won some prizes! Caitlin Niznik won a bicycle, while Katherine Greener got a gift card. Prizes sponsored by Pepsico.
