The Hamilton community and the college’s Entrepreneurship Club were at the center of a New York Times article titled “In a Digital Age, Students Still Cling to Paper Textbooks” in which the college was described as “a poster-perfect liberal arts school.” Focused on the cost of textbooks, the article highlighted the club’s successful efforts to create getmytextbooks.org, a site on which students can sell or rent their textbooks to other students while effectively eliminating costs associated with middlemen.
Several students, members of the club as well as users of the site, were quoted in the article that featured a photograph of club president Jason Mariasis. The article appeared on Oct. 20.
