While Barnes and Noble @ RIT is the perfect one-stop-shop for all of your academic needs, the campus bookstore offers much more throughout the year, well after textbook season has ended. Whether you need a Christmas gift for your mom or dad, a new piece of RIT gear, or just a good read (that is unrelated to classes), Barnes and Noble located in Park Point is the perfect place for you. Open from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday, and 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Sunday, check out what else the store has to offer:
Interested in getting in the spooky spirit? If so, there’s a huge array of Halloween-related books on a shelf immediately when you walk into Barnes and Noble! You can find spooky stories, haunted tales, and much more. Check out the bookstore often, as product offerings change all the time!
Do you find your reading addiction getting to be a bit expensive? Don’t worry. Barnes and Noble understands that college students are on a tight budget. Aside from the multiple areas in the bookstore where you can find more marked down and clearance products, there is a designated shelf full of bargain books. Next time you need a new read, but don’t want to break the bank, check out this shelf!
Games and Puzzles
Who said the bookstore is just for books? Barnes and Noble is packed with so much more than paperbacks and hardcovers. There are multiple shelves filled with countless games and puzzles that will keep you and your friends entertained for hours, when you can’t study anymore. You can find games like Cards Against Humanity, Nasty Things, and so much more.
Barnes and Noble has an entire section of a floor dedicated to RIT gear. From sweatshirts for you, to baseball caps for your mom, to mugs for your grandma, there isn’t a doubt that you’ll find something to show your Tiger Pride! RIT gear makes for the perfect gift to yourself, or for another. There are also plenty of items on sale in this section, so grab something before it goes!
Barnes and Noble Cafe
Are you sick of the coffee shops on campus? Are they too crowded? Or perhaps you can’t find an outlet to charge your laptop? Don’t fret. Many people don’t know that Barnes and Noble has a cafe that serves Starbucks coffee on the first floor! It is rarely crowded, making it the perfect place to do homework with a change of scenery. Grab a cappuccino or pastry, and grind out some work!
At a school as quirky as RIT, the campus bookstore obviously needs to have quirky products available too! Throughout Barnes and Noble, you can find countless gag gifts, interesting reads, or even a solar-powered Einstein figurine! What RIT student doesn’t need a figurine of their favorite physicist?
As you can tell, Barnes and Noble has everything you could possibly need after textbook season is long over. From solar-powered Einsteins to RIT gear for your pup, the bookstore is definitely worth checking out. Oh, and don’t worry. They have textbooks too!
