Utah State University (USU) is a large public university based in Logan, Utah. Originally founded in 1888, Utah State’s current student enrollment exceeds 28,000 students, and most of these students are enrolled in undergraduate programs. The school has eight different colleges that offer dozens of degree programs in everything from liberal arts, to business, to engineering. The athletic teams at Utah State are known as the Aggies. When it comes to textbooks, Utah State students do have some options on where to buy their books. Here are some of the best bookstores to check out on campus and in the Logan area:
The USU Bookstore is the official provider of textbooks and school supplies for Utah State students and faculty. It’s located at 650 North 800 East. The USU Bookstore carries all materials that students will need to be prepared for their classes at the start of each semester. New, used, and rental textbooks are available at this store. The store’s website has some great features that allow you to automatically pull up your book list, print out the list, and compare prices through various outlets to make sure you get the best prices on your books. You can also reserve textbooks in advance to avoid the mad rush and sell back your old textbooks to the bookstore for cash on the spot. The store also offers discounted computer items, including Dell, HP, and Apple products as well as popular software titles. Headphones and calculators are available, too. Additionally, you can purchase all kinds of Aggies clothing and novelties here for sports fans of all ages who want to root on Utah State’s athletic teams. Graduation items, school supplies, and gifts for alumni are just a few of the many other items for sale at this store.
True Aggie Textbooks & Sandwich Shop at 117 North Main Street in downtown Logan is a great off-campus bookstore. You can buy lots of new and used textbooks here at very low prices. The selection of used books is quite comprehensive, and it’s almost always a good idea to buy used if you can. Not only can you walk out of here with all the books you need and plenty of money left in your pocket, but you can also grab a bite to eat at the sandwich shop.
