Bookstore

The health and well-being of our customers and employees are incredibly important to us. It is with careful consideration that we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close stores starting on Tuesday, March 24, until further notice. We will be working remotely during that time.

We will continue to accept orders online for delivery with free shipping at www.augiebookstore.com. You may experience longer shipping times than usual. Any purchases returned via shipment to our stores will be processed when our stores reopen.

If you have any questions, please contact us at sm560@bncollege.com.


Mail Services

Window for Students

Mail and packages will continue to be dropped off and picked up at each building at the current drop-off location with exceptions being Froiland (see Nursing), Admin Building (see Business office), the Library and CWS. It will be the responsibility of the department chairs or supervisors to arrange delivery or pick up of mail/packages to employees in their departments or offices.
  • Outgoing mail route is limited to morning drop-offs and pickups, with no afternoon courier stops. Individuals can also drop mail in the designated Commons mail slots (both on-campus and off-campus mail).
  • For Packages:
    • Packages with a prepaid label on them for returns can be dropped off at any UPS store.
    • If employees can start having packages delivered to their homes instead of campus that would ensure quicker delivery.
