What BYU would be like if I was its president part-1

Based on previous posts, you should all know that my first act would be to fix the bookstore. Either make the prices of their books competitive, or at least post what books are required by what classes LONG before the semester starts.

They have complete control, and don’t post what books you need until 10 days before school starts, making it very difficult for students to then find an alternate (and cheaper) source.

Both of my Parents teach at BYU, and they claim that the bookstore requires they submit a list of required books for their course several months before the semester starts, so why isn’t this list made publicly available ?

Anyone who’s read the previous paragraph should know the answer to that.
