As far as bookstores go for NIU, I recommend VCB over this location. This store has everything that the VCB has to offer but it seems more expensive. This store also has longer lines and book buyback is completely confusing. I prefer VCB for book buyback as well. This is a great place to browse while killing some time on campus. It has cute NIU gear.

HSC bookstores is pretty expensive! They have a wide variety of stuff but the items are expensive for students. I found that the books were highly priced here than in some other locations. The college stuff (t-shirts, caps, etc.) is the same as in other places. The quality of clothes is nothing to rave about (for the price range) It does have a nice collection of gift items. But it would be my last resort.

This bookstore offers quite a variety of items. You can order your graduation announcements and pick up a birthday card in the same place. They have a vast array of NIU stuff, including clothing, stuffed animals and paper goods. They have a nice electronics counter. A great place to pick up an umbrella if it starts pouring. They have a minimal art department and their textbook section is a bit confusing. There is a good selection of smaller gift items like picture frams and notepads.

PROS: elevator, electronics, easy to get to
CONS: staff sometimes lacking downstairs
