Find Out Which College Is Completely Saying Goodbye To Textbooks

Schools are about to go completely digital. But who made the move first? The Associated Press reports that the University of Maryland University College of Upper Marlboro will be completely eliminating textbooks starting this fall. Turns out the decision to paperless is a financial one. The college, which has about 84,000 students, will provide “a variety of materials like readings and videos online at no cost,” vice provost Kara Van Dam said. UMUC is the first college in the country to get rid of textbooks, USA Today reports. Though undergraduates will be completely rid of them when this fall semester starts, grad students will have books until the fall of 2016. We can already start saying, “Back in my day, we had to carry 20 pound textbooks to every class!” Anyone else suddenly feeling old?
