Students at Metro State University of Denver will be on track to save themselves big money when it comes to purchasing textbooks this year.

According to a press release, OpenStax is a non-profit publisher based out of Rice University. They have begun teaming up with colleges and universities to supply their textbooks. Launched in 2012, they have more than 35 titles in their library and their books are used at nearly half of all colleges and universities in the US.

MSU Denver is among the latest colleges to enroll, and program-wide students are expected to save more than nine million dollars.

A fun fact about my college career that I would not recommend. Let me start off by saying I'm still a sophomore. But the one semester I actually had a 2.8 GPA was the one-semester I bought NO BOOKS. I encourage you to NOT try this at home if you value your future earnings potential.

DID YOU KNOW: The college scene in Denver is great but Fort Collins was just named one of the Top 10 College Towns in the Western USA.
