Providing Enhanced Student Support
In 2020, Providence College sought to provide additional support for students and families as they navigated challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic. The college turned to longtime partner Barnes & Noble College for a solution that would offer immediate relief as well as long-term benefits.
Providence College implemented First Day® Complete, Barnes & Noble College’s course material delivery model that provides affordable and equitable access for students. The program not only delivered greater savings and convenience – it reinforced the caring environment and sense of community that is the foundation of the “Friar family” at Providence College.
