The new online bookstore solution by eCampus.com can save Hiram students up to 70% off publisher list prices, promoting the institution’s focus on supporting a superior student experience.

Faculty can request desk copies and take advantage of eCampus.com’s deep publisher relationships to identify best-fit content, furthering the institution’s mission to foster intellectual excellence and social responsibility.

    “We chose eCampus for several reasons, including the convenience of their distribution center being physically closer to us, so shipments will arrive in one day,” said Shane Kardos, Manager of the Hiram College Bookstore. In addition, our students can take advantage of free shipping to the store, competitive pricing with the global marketplace, and the very affordable option of in-house textbook rentals.
