Kent State University is a public university with its main campus located in Kent, Ohio. This campus enrolls over 27,000 students per year. The school’s athletic teams are called the Golden Flashes. When it comes to academics, Kent State students know how important it is to have the right textbooks. Getting a good deal on them is even more imperative. Here are some good places to look for textbooks on and around campus:

The Kent State University Bookstore is the official textbook supplier for Kent State students and faculty. It’s housed in the heart of campus, and the actual address is 124 Student Center. Open seven days a week, the store offers a tremendous selection of textbooks and various options on how to acquire them. You can buy books brand new, buy books that are gently used, buy digital textbooks for a much lower price, or rent textbooks as another way to save money. Most items available at the store can also be bought online through the store’s website. In addition, discounts are available for students on a variety of computer software programs as well as desktop and laptop computers. When you shop here, you know you are getting the correct editions of your books and the right supplemental materials to help you study.

Another good bookstore to visit is Campus Book & Supply at 112 South Lincoln Street. CB&S has a comprehensive stock of new and used college textbooks for Kent State students. You can also rent books here. Discounts are a popular thing at this store, especially for online shoppers and Facebook users. When you order books online on orders over $150, you are guaranteed a discount. When you become  a fan of the store on its Facebook page, you are also guaranteed discounts and special offers on in-store purchases. They really keep the student in mind because they know students want to save on their books. Lots of other items are available here as well, such as Golden Flashes apparel, graduation items, and school supplies.

Last Exit Books at 124 East Main Street in downtown Kent is also an excellent place to shop if you’re looking to save money on books. They have a nice selection of college textbooks for students who attend Kent State and other local colleges. These books can be purchased or sold back to the store. Plus they sell lots of other books, DVD’s, CD’s, and even old records. Many of these items are used but in working condition. They are very reasonably priced.
