Saint Leo partners with Barnes & Noble College
Saint Leo University will soon kick off a new partnership with Barnes & Noble College in the operation of the university’s campus and online bookstores. Today, Barnes & Noble College operates 1,500 college and university campus stores nationwide and can offer many benefits for our students.
One of the benefits includes a program called First Day Complete. It’s designed to provide students with more timely access to their course materials so they are ready for the first day of class, while also reducing the cost of the materials. Barnes & Noble College has access to a library of more than 1 million electronic textbooks and offers an aggressive price-match program, ensuring students can purchase new or used textbooks at the lowest rate possible.
Additionally, Barnes & Noble College will offer $25,000 in annual textbook scholarships to our students, as well as a 10% discount for faculty and staff. They have also committed to making some significant investments to the campus bookstore to provide our students, faculty, and staff with a better experience.
Faculty, staff, and students can expect to hear more about the university’s transition to Barnes & Noble College in the coming weeks as they prepare to offer course materials for upcoming terms.
