Weber State University Alumni, Founders of Campus Book Rentals, Provide a Way to Rent Textbooks
Campus Book Rentals was founded by no more than a handful of Weber State College alumni, graduates with an eye for business and a passion for helping students succeed in college. Alan Martin, now acting CEO of Campus Book Rentals, built this company from the ground up with the help of his fellow alumni, Rocky Moline, Todd McCormick and Shane Willard.
-I was at my computer before one of my last Master’s classes buying another textbook online,- explains Alan Martin, CEO of Campus Book Rentals, -and it just dawned on me all at once that textbooks could be rented.- Since then, these four businessmen have worked together to create a flawless system of renting textbooks online, saving college students hundreds of dollars on textbooks every semester. Colleges and universities across the nation are taking advantage of this cheaper, faster, and easier way of getting the textbooks they need, not the least of which is Campus Book Rentals’ very own Weber State University.
-Our focus was always the national college scene, but we had to run a pilot at WSU to test our theories,- says Martin. The students at Weber State University seemed only too happy to get involved in a textbook rental process that would save them both time and money.
-I rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals, not just for the great price and efficiency of renting, but also because every time I rent a book from them, I’m reminded of how graduates from my school started a successful company and are now making a difference in the world,- says Emily J., a Junior at Weber State University. -It gives the students here something to work toward after graduation.-
The creation of Campus Book Rentals has started an entirely new industry in renting textbooks. Students from over 3, 500 campuses nationwide are discovering a better way to get the textbooks they need at a cheaper price. Ryan B., a Senior at Weber State University has this to say about renting textbooks from Campus Book Rentals: “Renting my books from Campus Book Rentals allowed me to save money and let someone else take the risk of not getting my money back at the end of the semester. In just one semester, I spent $60 instead of $200. I don’t think I would have gotten enough money back from the bookstore to even match what I paid using this service.”
Campus Book Rentals has single-handedly eased the burden of buying hundreds of dollars worth of textbooks every semester. A college student has enough expenses to worry about as it is. Rent your textbooks from Campus Book Rentals, and join the movement.
