February 5th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Clemson Bookstore From 60’s and 70’s (Part I)

Today’s photos are of the old Clemson Bookstore from the 1960’s and 1970’s.

Today, the Clemson Bookstore is in the Hendrix Center. But that has not always been the bookstore’s location. Today’s photos are from when the bookstore was under Harcombe Dining Hall.

Purchasing books for class has always been an interesting process. Textbooks seem to always cost much more than they were worth, and students many times had no use for the textbooks after they finished the course.

Of course, students also took advantage of the "buy back" option at the end of the course to get money back for textbooks that were returned in good condition. The bookstore would then resell the textbook to another student the following semester.

For the students, a wad of cash at the end of the semester was always a welcome excuse to have a good time!
