Hi Everyone!

All of the Option Checks have been placed inside of your student box. Please take the time to retrieve it.

Everyone abroad, we will hold on to your checks until next semester.

If you did not get paid, your book has not sold yet and we will keep it in the store until it sells. If you would like to retrieve your book (graduating seniors), we will give you an opportunity to come to the book store search for your books. Please contact us and we will set up a suitable time.

Alumni, we will be contacting you shortly.

Thank you for you business.

January 22 1-4 P.M

See you and your books there!

Attention students,

The management of The Option Bookstore understands that not very many students had the opportunity to participate in book drop, due to the scheduling of finals days before the Winter Holiday.
Not to worry! The Option will be holding book drop before the start of the semester, before we begin selling books for Spring 2016 classes.

Location: GARMAN HOUSE
Book Drop Dates:
January 21 1-4 P.M.
January 22 1-4 P.M
January 23 12-3 P.M.

We will post FB updates and send an email detailing the location, date and hours of book sale for Spring 2016 classes.

We hope you enjoy the remainder of your break!

Done with finals? Wanna forget about your classes entirely? We're currently running book drop in Garman. Swing on by! We're here until 6 tonight.

12/19/2015

Hey Everyone,

As you've probably seen from the emails, Book drop starts tomorrow. We will be in Garman House 12-2 and 4-6 P.M. to collect books to sell next semester.

We hope to see you there.
