As the semester winds down, the University Book Store is ramping up for a busy May, as we are the provider of all caps and gowns for the graduates and faculty as they prepare for their special day. After final exams, the move-out experience can be rough but is made easier by the Book Store’s Shipping Center. We are here to help pack up your student’s belongings and ship them home via UPS and FedEx, while at the same time offering discounted student shipping rates. As the current students leave for the summer, the Book Store transitions to summer SOAR welcoming up to 8,000 new students over a few months. We continue to offer a free t-shirt to SOAR students and their parents while participating in the SOAR process. And we look forward to offering technology advice, as we have the information at our computer store to guide students to the recommended Apple vs Dell computer for their major. Whether it is Badger clothing, textbooks, or school supplies, the University Book Store has all your student’s needs!
