With the rising cost of textbooks, AULA students are taking issues into their own hands and solving their problems the old fashioned way—by lending a hand (or in this case, a book) through social media. Students have created two textbook exchange groups on Facebook. These textbook exchanges will provide another way to access the textbooks that students may need for their courses. It will help them engage with one another in community support and encourage them to read, read, read the material they need to be the best scholars. The textbook exchange will also help students save money by buying and selling textbooks between their classmates.
PSYCHOLOGY STUDENTS – This group has been building momentum and accomplishing its goal nicely. Members of this group are selling and swapping their Clinical Psychology program text books.
UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS – This is a new and closed group Book Exchange where students may post requests for textbooks they are seeking as well as post lists of textbooks they are willing to lend or sell to fellow students.
