Rush sales

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.

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!
