First day of community college

Recommended Posts

yesterday was the first day I attended a community college class in person, up until now I had only done classes online and I rather enjoyed it because they were a short 8 week class, fast paced and to the point. I find myself surrounded by young people (I'm only 26) who are kinda careless and inconsiderate. The first 20 mins of my History of photography class was a discussion of the book, not the content, but the price and how expensive it was and I agree at 150$ its kinda ridiculous. In that same class discussion people just keep seemed to always coming back to the idea of taken the book and making photo copies of each chapter so that no one had to buy the book, sounds illegal and lazy these kids all have fee waivers so they dont shell out any money for tuition, but they still feel the need to dodge the fee for the book. One girl said she rented the book online for $26 dollars and thats kinda reasonable. I dont care about the book price I will covered by the VA for all my books and supplies. Anyone want to share or add anything here?

They don't want to pay for the book because it comes out of their financial aid. Anything left over from the book money goes to your account. You can return te book at the end of the semester, for about $20....then they resell it for the original price. Full time students live off of their financial aid, so I can understand bitching about the price of a book...on the other hand, you can find them on various websites used for better prices.

Books can be expencive. My daughter is going to university to be a doctor. Droped her off to live on campass, last week.

Last year, I purchased some text books for her that she needed. Much to my suprise most of them cost over 2-3 hundred dollars per book.

Oh yeah I know book are expensive they are always full price at school people search online for cheaper prices, I couldnt bring myself to spend over $100 for a book. I wonder if there is any Investigative Documentaries on the text book industry.

what no kindle versions LMAO the college bunch sure act like they are knowledgeable and considerate of their

 

charges and their vocabulary and politically correct verses are smooth as silk and then you get the bill holy crap rat man

 

lab fees and books uniforms equipment and travel etc etc and then ya got to eat dorm costs bus passes if you don't

 

have a car and once you got your sheep skin you have to dress the part and have money for an apartment

 

etc. etc but don't worry I heard it from a little birdy that all the student loans will be forgiven hell whats a trillion dollars

 

more or less.

 

or for a fall back plan you can get a interns job for a senator or congressman and they will pay off your debt.

 

but the cost of knee pads and wipes may cost more just a random thought ..........

I haven't been on here in a while, but yeah I just started my first day of community college today. Book prices took up more of the conversation then necessary today but it is definitely costly.

 

My books were $272 to RENT them. If I damage them it will jump to about $500. Where, on Amazon.com, I can buy one of the books for $120 new that cost $100 to rent and $200 to buy at my college. If I had the money I would buy the book, then sell it back, and maybe lose $20 instead of paying $100 to rent it, but I don't have the money right now. I received financial aid so I got a voucher saying that they will take the book rental costs out of my loan, once I get it, in 2 months.

 

It is what it is, but if the books were still worth the same as when this semester started, instead of spending $272, I could have spent maybe $50 on renting these books. It wasn't worth the opportunity cost for my first semester, I would rather pay that much just to make sure the first semester goes right.
