    Bookstore?

    Advertisements



    I was just wondering if the no longer existing Note Services was essentially the bookstore on campus? I was just wondering about where to buy books and supplies and what not. Also, is there a place where you can buy perhaps an AUC med school sweatshirt and stuff like that, or am I reaching too high with that question? Thanks!

    There are a number of places where you can pick up stationary supplies on the island. From the markets, to the Mail Box, to Office World in P-burg, to Cost-U-Less (the island's form of Costco).

    As for books, not sure how that's going to handled anymore, but you can always order it, bring it down with you, or have it shipped to you (either directly to the school or opening a Mail Box account).

    For books I would probably use amazon and get it shipped down here. The mailbox is expensive for heavy packages (books) but a company called 4 star cargo out of Miami is cheaper for that kind of stuff.

    Since they shut down note services, they essentially liquidated all of their merchandise for super cheap. So right now there are no AUC sweatshirts, hats, t shirts coffee mugs, etc. Kind of sucks because I wanted to bring that kind of stuff back to people at home. I got 3 identical AUC tshirts because God knows when you will be able to buy more.

    Hi!

    I'm starting this May and after ASKING many many questions! It's great that I can finally answer one! Yay! This is the most updated info. since it applies to students that start this May. Since note services is no more, AUC now offers an online bookstore. If you go to AUC's webite, you'll see the link. The online bookstore seems to be good cause you can buy all your books there and then have them ship it to St. Maarten directly for a not too expensive price. I think it is like $33 inc. tax/fees to get your books in 5-7 days. They have all your books in the online bookstore separated out by semester. They also sell the review books and some school supplies like pens, paper, etc. Now, I have nooo idea if this is just a temporary solution for books for the May class but as of now, this is what AUC offers as far as books go.

    Hope that helps!

    As far as AUC clothing, since Note Service closed many of the organizations will be printing t-shirts for sale. There are usually about 2-3 designs each semester for sale.

    A bookstore on campus?!? HAHAHHAHAHAHAHA. Nice one.
    Anyways, the note service used to be a place to get sweaters and stuff, but that old thing shut down and now we need to knit our own sweaters if we want sweaters. OR wait around for the different semester money drives where they sell you over priced shirts and stuff so it doesn't seem like they are taking your money straight out of your pocket.
