    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Books for School

It’s about that time students are beginning to check their class schedule and find out what books they will need to get for each class.  Going into my senior year now, I’ve had a little experience when it comes to buying/renting my books for school.  I feel like so many students end up spending more money than necessary on their books each semester.  The most unfortunate situation is when you buy a brand new book for a class and only end up using it a handful of times or in some cases, never at all.  If you’re like me you want to save your money whenever possible when it comes to life in college. Here are a few tips when it comes to buying books for your classes.

1) Be Organized

– It is a classic situation where students show up to class on the first day and have yet to think about the books they need to get for each class. Trust me, you do not want to be the student sharing a book or waiting for your book to be delivered two to three weeks into the semester; your professors won’t be very fond of this. Get on our css.edu website and look up the books you need and get them ordered ASAP so you are well prepared come the first class day.

2) Do Your Research

– Be sure to ask your peers and friends on your Class of 201? Scholastica Facebook page to see if anyone knows whether or not you need books for certain classes. I’ve been in multiple classes that say they require a book but never end up using it. Be sure to use your resources when trying to find out what books are necessary to get and which one’s are worth passing up on.

3) Ask Friends

– If you know anyone who has already taken the class, see if they will let you borrow the book they bought. It’s been great being a part of the baseball team because other guys have taken the same classes I have and have handed down books for those classes. Everyone is more than willing to help out fellow students! Don’t be afraid to ask!

4) Find the best deal

– Be sure to not only check out the EBooks on our website but also, amazon, eBay, etc. to find books for the best deal! Remember for your general education classes you may not want to keep those books forever and therefore renting books may be more what you’re looking for. I’ve had great success renting books online from Barnes & Noble and buying books on Amazon.

5) Be sure to read the student community e-mails

Often times the student community e-mail that gets sent everyday to the student e-mails includes “adds” students looking to buy, sell, and trade books! This is a great way to not only get the books you are looking for, but also meet new people!


Best of luck!
