Bruisers Bookies is a club started by Bookstore Manager Kathleen Fennell, and Director of Business Affairs Ronna Colland. The goal of the club is to “allow students to share what they would like to see in the bookstore,” Fennell said.
The club has helped to increase sales by promoting the bookstore via social media. Members of the club helped with Grad Central that took place on February 17, 2015.
The students in the organization discuss what new items they would like to see, whether they want “Pitt” or “Pitt-Greensburg” written on apparel, and what new improvements can be made to the bookstore.
Some things to look forward to in the bookstore are the new items that will be coming in for graduation and the 10-percent discount that will take place the whole month of April. Anyone interested in sharing their opinions or becoming a part of the club are welcome to join. Bruisers Bookies usually meets once a month on Wednesdays at noon.
