Campus Book Rentals and Operation Smile

Hey friends! It’s Kayli!

So for those of you that don’t know, I’m just finishing up my Freshman year as an Aggie at good old NMSU! {Hallelujah! 1 down!}  I’m currently studying Secondary Education with an emphasis in Language Arts.  I’ve loved a lot about my experiences as a new college student, it’s been an adjustment but it’s been fun. I’ve embraced late night paper writing and night after night of ramen noodles. But one thing I will NEVER embrace? The awful gut wrenching feeling of handing over half of my summer savings for textbooks. I’m sure you all know about The Freshman Curse. I see it in the terrified eyes of the new kids registering for next semester, and now I see that my first semester, I fell into it too. As a brand new college student, I was convinced that I needed to do everything EXACTLY the standard and perfect way. Despite many warnings, and lots of advice on how I could get my books online and that I should wait a week, and that I could rent, I went into the bookstore a week before classes started and bought every single book on my class list. Mainly out of fear. THAT is the Freshman curse.

Supporting our Aggies as Freshmen!!!

I was out A LOT of money and I didn’t even use some of the books I bought. To top it off, the bookstore would only buy back a few of my books, so I still have a few that I never have and will never use. And mine is just one of the millions of horror stories. Luckily, I grew out of the curse- and so can you!
