Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) safety concerns, Auxiliary Services along with campus administration has made the decision to close the physical bookstore location in Kunsela Hall at the Utica location effective Monday March 23, 2020. However, to avoid disruption and in order to facilitate the learning process and make your eLearning experience more dynamic, our campus store is offering three options listed below to supplement and support your efforts.
