Presbyterian College is a small private college based in Clinton, South Carolina. Founded in 1880, the school is directly affiliated with the Presbyterian Church in the United States. Current enrollment is about 1,300 students. The school has 16 varsity sports teams and is a member of the Big South conference. These athletic teams are known as the Blue Hose. When it comes to textbooks, Presbyterian students can buy their books on campus and get them from a few other sources. Here are the best ways to get textbooks:

If you want to buy books on campus at Presbyterian, check out the official campus bookstore. It’s called My Friend’s Bookstore and sits right in the heart of campus at 112 Mungrove Street. Even though this bookstore is the official campus outlet for textbooks, it is owned and operated entirely by Presbyterian students. That means you will get great customer service because the students who work here know exactly what their fellow students need. Plus they realize how important it is for students to save money. When you shop here, a friendly representative will personally assist you in finding your books. In most cases, all of your books can be collected in no more than 90 seconds. This means you can get in, get out, and get on with your homework. The store’s website offers a convenient price comparison tool so you can find out immediately how the prices of the books at the store compare to those at other online retailers. Books are available as new or used, and quite a good number of books are also available to rent. The store also sells a wide selection of Blue Hose apparel, gear, and clothing to show support for the Presbyterian athletic teams. Most of the items sold at the store are available for purchase online, and orders over $75 will ship for free.

Because Presbyterian is a small school in the fairly small town of Clinton, there aren’t many other options to get textbooks in the local area. If the official campus bookstore does not have what you need, or if you want to shop around more, you should check out some websites to get great deals on books. Chegg is a great website for renting textbooks. You can save up to 90% by renting your books here. All you have to do is order them, have them sent to you, and then send them back when you are done with them. In addition, is a fantastic source for buying textbooks. You can find extremely low prices on used books with eBay, and in many cases, the shipping is free. Finally, is always a reliable source for books and merchandise of all kinds. Amazon sells tons of new and used textbooks at inexpensive prices and also offers lots of reasonable options on shipping and handling.
