National Student Watch Survey
In the fall of 2015, UMW participated in the National Association of College Stores (NACS) National Student Watch Survey, designed to monitor student preferences surrounding course materials to assist stores in best supporting their students. If all else were equal, 67% of students prefer to shop through the UMW Bookstore, 56.66% in store and 10.2% online, while 59.61% used the website to research different format options. Many UMW students were unaware of a price comparison tool on the UMW Bookstore website.
