What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?Clemson University is dedicated to its students in many ways, but takes unfair advantage of them using the University bookstore.  The University bookstore only buys back select used books, often for 20% or less of the original price.  It then sells those used books back for 70% or more of the original price.  Freshman are especially taken advantage of, as many common freshman classes require special edition Clemson book packages that can only be found at the University bookstore.  Students who pay thousands of dollars per semester for an education deserve better than being ripped off by their own bookstore.Describe your classmates in one sentence.The Clemson student is an academic, proud of his school and all of its accomplishments, unselfish towards other students, and most importantly motivated to learn for learning’s sake.
