Some Troy University-specific news: Troy University and Barnes and Noble College Booksellers team up

On Aug. 1, a five-year contract with Barnes & Noble College Booksellers will commence providing University students a centralized bookstore rather than a textbook warehouse, according to Dr. John Schmidt, senior vice chancellor for student services.

The University will construct a 10,400 square-foot bookstore on the Troy Campus that will be equipped by Barnes & Noble to match the company’s superstores, and will make similar improvements to bookstores on the Montgomery, Dothan and Phenix City campuses.


In addition, the Troy Campus bookstore will include a cafe, a reading area, trade books and wide selection of casual reading. University bookstores in Dothan, Montgomery and Phenix City will also get updating and offer an expanded line.

We desperately need a real bookstore and a place to to get a real cup of coffee on campus (aside, of course, from my office).

Politics In Alabama linked with Good News for Troy University


  1. Be careful what you wish for; my campus has *four* Starbucks — the latest was actually built into the library. It makes the campus look like a corporate subsidiary.

  2. If you’ve ever been into a Barnes and Noble College “bookstore” you’ll be lucky to find books-They tend to just stock college apparell and not a whole lot of books.

  3. Trust me: it won’t be hard to improve on what we’ve got.

  4. So glad to see Troy finally getting a good bookstore and a good coffee shop, oh how I would have loved it when I was there. Any idea were it is going to be?

  6. Let’s not celebrate too soon. I’m taking the wait and see approach.

    Comment by Jan — Thursday, July 14, 2005 @ 5:18 pm

  7. Aside from your office?

    Are you inviting everyone over for coffee on you?

    Comment by Steven L. — Thursday, July 14, 2005 @ 9:05 pm

  8. Steven: should you ever make to town, but of course.

    Jeff: They are going to build a second story over the weight room and make that the book store.

    Jan: I actually knew about the plans before the news and it comports with a conversation I had with persons involved. I think this is a go.

    Comment by Dr. Steven Taylor — Thursday, July 14, 2005 @ 10:18 pm

  9. Do you know if they will still be offering book vouchers for students who receive financial aid?
    I hope this doesn’t get skipped in the change over. Some of us might end up without books.

  10. Cassandra,

    I have no knowledge of that issue, but would imagine that the move would not affect such programs in any way.
