Idaho State University is a large public university in Pocatello, Idaho. Commonly referred to as simply ISU, the school was founded in 1901. It currently enrolls over 15,000 students. The official school colors are black and orange. The athletic teams at Idaho State are called the Bengals, and Benny the Bengal is the school’s mascot who roots on these teams. As far as textbooks go, Idaho State students have a few options on where to get them. The following stores are the best places to look if you are in the market for textbooks:

The Idaho State University Bookstore is the official bookstore serving Idaho State students and faculty alike. Housed inside the Ponds Student Union Building at 515 South 8th Avenue, the bookstore provides all materials required or recommended for every course at the university. You can purchase new textbooks, used textbooks, digital textbooks, and you can rent textbooks for big savings. Open Monday through Saturday, the store also sells a variety of software titles at reduced prices for students. If you need a new computer or a new piece of software, you should really consider buying it here because of the educational discount you will receive. Show your Bengals pride by getting some game-day gear and clothing to support the school’s sports teams. Get ready for graduation with all of your supplies like diploma frames, caps, and gowns. You can also find lots of school supplies like backpacks and desk accessories to get your dorm room in order for the upcoming semester. Most items, including textbooks, can be purchased online and shipped to you.

Textbook Exchange is a great off-campus bookstore and exchange center serving Idaho State students. Textbook Exchange is conveniently located near campus at 639 South 5th Avenue. At Textbook Exchange, you can buy new and used textbooks at discounted prices. You can also rent books and save over 60% off the regular list price. Additionally, you can sell back your used textbooks to the store and walk out a happy camper with a nice amount of money for your books. Since the store is called Textbook Exchange, you can obviously exchange books as well depending on how much your books are worth and how much the books you need will cost. This bookstore is an excellent option for saving money.

You should also try checking out some websites that sell and rent textbooks. Chegg is an excellent source for textbook rentals. You can rent books and save up to 90% by renting, and the selection on this site is fantastic. In addition, you should go to Amazon.com where you can buy lots of new and used textbooks. Even the prices on new books at Amazon tend to run a lot cheaper than buying them elsewhere.
