UNCC’s answer for pricey textbooks: Rent ‘em
By Sam Boykin Zhana Nay, a junior at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, spends on average about $500 a semester on textbooks. “Some books cost about $170,” said Nay, a nursing major. “It’s really expensive.” It’s enough to make any parent or working student cringe.
