New Report: Students Prefer the Campus Store; Faculty Influence is Huge

The campus store continued to hold the top spot for both purchases and rentals of course materials during the fall 2015 semester.

According to Student Watch™, the industry leading survey, 82% of students purchased at least one course material from the campus store, up from 68% a year ago, and 58% rented there. Amazon was the closest competitor, with frequency of rentals through Amazon showing marked growth at 33%, up from 28% a year ago.

Students Work, Get Help to Pay Their Debt

A significant number of college students – 39% -- say they currently have no student debt facing them upon graduation, according to the OnCampus Research Student Panel survey conducted in February 2016. While the majority of students are accumulating some debt while in school, the amount for most remains fairly low; nearly one quarter of students owe less than $10,000. Another 21% owe between $10,000 and $30,000.

While students overwhelmingly cite tuition, housing, and living expenses as their top three cost challenges, most students also get some help with their bills. While nearly 100% own a smartphone, nearly half of them don’t pay their own mobile phone bill. More about student debt.
