Textbook Loan Program
The CARE Center in partnership with ASCMC’s Campus Improvements Committee and Nextdorm, a CMC student managed startup, provides donated textbook loans to current CMC students. The program, which starts the first week of the semester helps students access donated textbooks free of charge for the current semester. This initiative launched in an effort to support students who may face challenges with book affordability or simply looking to save money to navigate rising textbook expenses. Each year students donate to the library allowing fellow peers to access this resource.
