Smartphone Journalism STUDENT EXPRESSES APPREHENSION FOR THE CLOSING OF YORK'S BOOKSTORE Story and Photo by: Taylor Jacobs York College is one of 14 Cuny schools that is saying goodbye to their on-campus book stores and opting for an online alternative. Students will now have to purchase their books solely online but what does this mean for the students? Shadia Islam, 19, a sophomore and Health Science major from Ozone Park feels that the bookstores are still a commodity for college students and are worth keeping around. "Everything is automated so I understand why this is happening but we can't just depend on online (platforms) because we will always need somewhere physical to go to. Plus, I don't know, I just have a feeling that this will also cause the prices of the books to raise," says Islam. As we all know, the digital age is upon us and everything as we know it is steadily advancing but Shadia poses the question as to whether certain attempts to innovate new and improved ways to convenience everyday life is actually complicating things. #yorkjournalism #cunyyorkcollege #cunyqueens #collegelife #smartphonejournalism #bookstores
