The KC Bookstore has a variety of items waiting to be bought, but not many people realize just how extensive a selection is offered.

The store is not very big, but it can help many students in a lot of ways throughout the semester.

Most students need books of course, but they may also need other items that can carry them a long way throughout the semester.

Scantrons, laptops, tablets, backpacks, paper, pencils, and much more can make the difference in a student passing or failing a semester.

The Spring Semester has brought plenty of students into the KC bookstore, manager Martin Cobb said. New merchandise abounds, especially in the back. Students are being enticed with KC apparel such as jackets, sweats, T-shirts, and more.

The most popular piece of clothing that students wear around campus is the new KC hoodies, helping students keep warm during these cold winter days.

The KC hoodies come in the KC colors, of course, with numerous designs and the KC logo on the front. Cost is between $45 and $60.

All the T-shirts, hats and backpacks are a big deal with the students as well this semester.

The bookstore also has plenty of school supplies that can get any student through the semester, and most importantly it will not take that much money out of your pocket.

The bookstore has an large variety of journals, folders, writing utensils and much more.

For entertainment it also offers movies, blockbuster hits, and all different genres of music on display. They also have headphones, phone cases, speakers, and more items to entertain the students.

Cobb loves the new merchandise that has arrived this semester.

“We actually have a new merchandise manager for this semester. He has helped us reshape the merchandise that we had, and has brought a lot of new stuff in for people to buy,” Cobb said. “The one thing that students don’t know is that we have plenty of laptops and tablets. We sold over 200 laptops and tablets during Rush Week, and that’s why we have plenty of laptop cases so they can have something to put it in. We have sold plenty of Scantrons and blue books. Whatever the students need we have it.”
