When students visited the remodeled store this semester, they found one notably absent college staple: Textbooks. Gone are the shelves of history and biology books that once populated the store’s second floor, space converted into a career center. The shop, about half its former 24,000 square feet, now directs students to order textbooks online rather than browsing its banished stacks. To underscore the closed chapter, the university even dropped “bookstore” from the stop’s title. The sleek, swag-stuffed showroom has been renamed Falcon Outfitters.
