Professors change textbook policy to save students money

Some professors on Tarleton’s campus are forgoing the mandatory purchase of textbooks and the overall use of textbooks. In previous years, it has been required for students to purchase a textbook or multiple textbooks if they wanted to pass the course. This trend is now changing in some departments on Tarleton’s campus.

Professors share their student pet peeves

“I really don’t like it when students have an excuse,” Hinson said. “I’d rather them just to be honest. If you overslept, just say you overslept. Don’t tell me that your car died, the dog died or some other reason that just doesn’t sound plausible. Just be honest. If you miss class, I’d rather just know that you were tired that day and didn’t want to come to class, rather than you had to do something else.”
