Trevecca’s “Books Fly Free” informational meeting Thursday

By Katie Schimmelpfennig

A textbook policy informational meeting is scheduled for this Thursday, at 7 p.m. in Moore Gymnasium.

The open forum will give students an opportunity to ask officials about the proposal.

The new textbook proposal, “Books fly free,” will work a textbook fee into tuition. Books are rentals and will be delivered to students’ on-campus dorms and apartments. Students will receive every book, as a rental, that professor’s request for $20 per credit hour. Students will then return their books to the bookstore at the end of the semester, or buy them to keep.

SGA approved the program Feb. 13, but SGA President Riley Wampler said SGA might vote again after hearing from a group of students who have raised concerns and questions about the new program.

Trevecca administrators will act on the recommendation of SGA about whether to adopt a new textbook policy that requires all students to rent their textbooks from the company that manages the Trevecca bookstore.
