Professor Hyslop has significantly helped the students of his classes deal with the high cost of textbooks. One of the ways Professor Hyslop is helping students with the high cost of textbooks is by offering an e-book that is not only completely free, but that is also provided directly by the government agency FEMA. Professor Hyslop explains how his “[…] students will not have to pay a cent for texts next quarter.” With this out of the box thinking Professor Hyslop has been able to continuously provide his students with the quality education that Cal Poly Pomona is known for in addition to making that valuable degree much more affordable.
