    Pat's Bio:
    My name is Pat Bigaouette. I am a Senior Biology major. I run on the cross country and track teams at Scholastica. I currently live in Somers Hall as the Residential Advisor for Ground Floor North. Also, I am actively involved in Scholastica's theater program and hope to get cast in one of the four shows this season. This summer I conducted clinical research at Hennepin County Medical Center in the Emergency room. I also traveled to New York City to pick up a friend from school and, of course, saw the show "Wicked" on Broadway.

I feel like I say this every day…but school is rapidly approaching. So, it’s probably time to start buy books. While normally the price of  my books creep up into the hundreds of dollars, I managed to pay just $33 this semester for all of my books. Oh the joys of being a Senior…and having no labs.

College of  St. Scholastica Bookstore

For those of you have book upon book to buy, renting your books from the bookstore might be a good idea. Every single book from the bookstore this year has the option of being rented. This is a great way to save money. Also, online websites such as Amazon, Half.com and textbooks.com might be good options as well. Many of these websites also have buy-back options so you end up with money at the end of the semester for post-finals celebrations.

Books for this semester..$33!!

Looking to friends who have already taken the classes you have signed up for is another great option for saving money. I have bought countless books from upperclassmen and then turned around to sell them to students taking the classes the next year. Wherever you get your books from, buying them early is the key to getting cheap books.

If you are buying books from the bookstore, you have the option of paying through your student account. To do this go to the business office and have one of the employees transfer money to your “bookstore account”. Previously, I have had my account set up to transfer $300 per semester to the bookstore. This way I have money to buy books and book supplies.

Remember to get your books early to avoid last minute stress before school starts.
