The campus bookstore is no longer the place you go to buy textbooks once a semester. Its new incarnation is part of the changing landscape of what higher education offers students.
Imagine that the campus store you remember from college–the place where you went to buy text books and maybe a school sweatshirt–could be so much more. Now, instead of just a bookstore, it’s a town square/marketplace where students, faculty, and maybe even locals grab lunch, meet friends for coffee or a glass of wine in the evening, plug in for an afternoon of studying, buy an iPad, buy a keyboard, buy a T-shirt, get their laptop fixed, and perhaps buy a book.
