With the first week of classes almost to a close, many students are finalizing their schedules and buying textbooks for the semester.

A popular location to buy textbooks is the Student Book Store, 421 E. Grand River Ave., and Ned’s Book Store, 135 E. Grand River Ave.

For last-minute shoppers looking to buy online, there are sites that can help cut costs. MSU students can buy and sell books with other students through booklify.com and book.ly.
