It’s the first day of school at the University of Alabama and like clockwork, we’re talking about textbook prices, again!
This has become a bit of a cliche for the “back-to-school” edition of the campus paper. But, I understand if you are a student, textbook prices are front-and-center on the first day.
The Crimson White, which publishes four days a week will have two editions this week and chose to position a textbook story on its front page.
As a member of the University Textbook committee, I know how much the Bookstore is excited about its textbook rental program, which allows students to access books at lower prices provided they are returned in good condition at the end of the semester.
