Survey Results

Recently we sent a survey to alumni asking what LSSU items they would be most likely to purchase at Barnes & Noble at LSSU. We received a wide variety of feedback - see the results.
 Many of the items alumni mentioned in the survey are already available on the Barnes & Noble website; others are available in store and can be purchased remotely by calling the store at 906-635-2227 and speaking with a sales associate. Store hours are 8:30am - 5:00pm Monday-Thursday; 8:30am - 4:00pm on Fridays; and 10:00am - 3:00pm Saturdays.
