Bucknell University is a private institution of higher education in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania in the center of the state. The campus is located on the banks of the West Branch Susquehanna River. Originally established in 1846, the school has an annual enrollment of about 3,600 students with just over 100 of them enrolled in postgraduate programs. Bucknell’s athletic squads are known as the Bison, and Bucky the Bison is the official school mascot. Orange and blue are the school colors. Bucknell students can choose from the following options when buying their course textbooks:

Barnes & Noble at Bucknell University Bookstore is the official university bookstore at the school. It is housed in the heart of campus at 400 Market Street. When you shop here, you will be guaranteed to be getting the correct materials for your classes because the faculty members work directly with the bookstore staff. You can buy new textbooks, used textbooks for savings of up to 25% off, rentals for savings of up to 50% off, and e-textbooks for savings of up to 60% off. Clearly there is a choice for everyone. You can also pick up technology items at vastly reduced prices for students. Brands include HP, Logitech, and Epson. Just present your student ID for the discounts. Additionally, the store sells lots of Bison athletic gear to show off your school spirit for the sports teams on campus. There are school supplies, graduation items, souvenirs, and general books on the shelves here as well. The great thing about this bookstore is that most of the items for sale in-store are available for purchase online if you can’t make it in to the store by the time your classes start.

Since there aren’t too many other options on places to buy textbooks in the Lewisburg area, be sure to use Textbooks.org should you choose to shop online for your books. There are lots of online booksellers that offer books at great low prices. Plus there are more websites that offer textbook rentals than ever before, and renting books is an excellent way to save money on them. Not only does it help to save money by renting, but also it gets the books off your hands when you’re done with them so that you don’t have to wonder how you will sell them to recoup the cash that you spent on them in the first place. It’s always a good idea to compare prices on anything you buy, especially when it comes to textbooks.
