Hey there BookRenters – my name is Allison, and I’m the newest addition to the marketing team at BookRenter. I’m your Social Community Manager – which basically means I get to find hilarious, helpful, exciting and oftentimes, bizarre internet phenomenons, photos, memes, videos and tips you’ll want to be keeping up on in your college life and beyond (although I won’t be keeping up with the Kardashians for you. Just putting that out there.) Along with some talented digital college interns from across the U.S., we’ll be writing about social trends that are relevant to YOU – whether it’s a video that one-ups the Honey Badger (I don’t know if this is possible), or the best cheap burger places to eat around campus after French class (oui, s’il vous plait). If I could’ve eaten my way to a college degree, I would have.
A little background about me: I’m a bi-coaster, hailing from the east coast and currently living on the west coast. I grew up in the gorgeous Hudson Valley of downstate New York (right outside NYC), and studied at Boston University, so I’m all about the city life through and through. If you’re a city campus dweller like I was, or spend your time on a fab campus that’s more rural, I want you to dish about your best tips too, so you can save mucho dinero for a fantastic #YOLO experience this summer.
This is where BookRenter comes in. Throughout the year, we’re relentlessly working to get you the best deals on your price-soaring textbooks with our flexible book rental periods, and free return shipping on all books. We even throw you some cash towards your next rental if you’re finished with books early – so you won’t see your money disappear into thin air at your campus bookstore buy back at the end of the semester.
So dive in with me and the BookRenter team – we’re pretty excited to have you. We’ll be sharing a ton of great info to come, and feel free to share your experiences with us too. Now let’s go get some cheeseburgers.
