Book Exchange 2.0

Most students hate purchasing and selling textbooks each semester. They’re grossly over-priced, and when you go to sell them back, a book that cost you $200 is now magically worth $40, yet sold for $200. It doesn’t make much sense, but most of us do it twice a year. In order to combat this, the University Park Undergraduate Association implemented the student Book Exchange program, where students sell and buy books from other Penn State students for no additional costs or surcharges.

The plan has been around for almost two years, but the UPUA has been working on some spiffy updates: a quick search option, a more advanced search option, and a profile page to keep track of your order history. The new version will be similar to Amazon in its functionality.
