OPINION: Baruch Bookstore and Café Closure Sparks Student Outrage

BARUCH COLLEGE–The campus bookstore and cafe will close, announced Baruch College officials during an Undergraduate Student Government senate session on Oct. 6.

The Barnes & Noble location will instead be accessible as Akadémos, an online bookstore.

The new website would connect to students’ Blackboard accounts, making it easier to find and order required texts, instead of picking them up in person.

One downside to this change, however, is that the physical location of the bookstore/cafe will be converted into a Baruch One Stop Shop center.
