Oklahoma Christian University Announces New Campus Store Partnership

Jan 17, 2018

Oklahoma Christian University is pleased to announce a new course materials and campus store partnership with Tree of Life Bookstores. The transition to Tree of Life is scheduled for late February 2018. The partnership will provide OC students with more affordable course material solutions while expanding the selection of branded apparel and merchandise inside the remodeled campus store coming in the summer of 2018.

President John deSteiguer said, “We’re excited about OC’s partnership with Tree of Life Bookstores. Their innovative approach to delivering affordable course materials is a win for our students and faculty. Tree of Life supports OC’s commitment to faith and stellar academics. We’re thrilled they are going to be an important part of our home.”

Tree of Life will offer its innovative Textbook Butler service to students. This free service allows students to receive all course materials delivered to their campus residences before classes begin. Students will have the option to choose new, used, rented or digital preferences for course materials. 

According to Scott LaMascus, vice president for academic affairs at OC, the new partnership will offer OC students additional options for finding necessary books and course materials for modern college courses. “This partnership underscores our dedication to helping our students affordably achieve academic excellence,” LaMascus said. “We are particularly glad to offer new options for course materials that match the different learning preferences of our students.”

Darren Campbell, chief executive officer and founder of Tree of Life Bookstores, commented, “Tree of Life is excited to support Oklahoma Christian in its mission of integrating Christian faith and practice with academic excellence. We look forward to positively impacting the students at Oklahoma Christian by providing affordable access to the course materials they need to be as successful as possible.”
