Purpose of the Birtic Book Loan Program

College textbooks are expensive. Most students consider the cost of tuition and room and board, but few consider the cost of textbooks. Students are almost always paying for their textbooks from their own pocket. This takes away need resources to cover living expenses such as housing, food, and other expenses. For this reason, George Birtic wishes to establish the Birtic Book Loan Program to help students in a way that very few other programs do. George would like to lessen this burdenby providing funding to help students defray the cost of their textbooks.
