THIBODAUX – Students at Nicholls State University will soon be able to rent their textbooks. The cost-saving service, implemented via an agreement between the university and Barnes and Noble – the university’s textbook contractor – is expected to go into effect in fall 2010.
“We are committed to easing the financial burden on Nicholls students,” Brenda Haskins, director of auxiliary services, said. “This program, through our bookstore, is one such example. We hope to minimize student costs by having as many books as possible available for rental. I want to thank Nicholls President Stephen Hulbert for his leadership and vision in reaching this agreement, as well as Barnes and Noble for their commitment to affordable higher education.”
