What are you guys seeing for rush sales? We're up over last year but way down compared to pre-COVID. Maybe COVID made students realize they don't need to buy books from the bookstore.

Down. My school always loved OER and now they love it even more.
I’m down a lot against last year.
Rush sales are down because the company cannot recover after years of failing to innovate and compete price-wise. Amazon ate them for lunch, and college kids know that they either don’t really need that paperback or calculus book, or they use OER. “Used rental is king” my a-s.
Same as you. Up over last year but down to pre-Covid. Students know to go to other sites now. Professors are increasingly switching to OER. I’m just hoping to have a decent sport season at this rate, go Team!
