Everyone knows that college is expensive and that isn't going to change any time soon. Prices continue to rise across Texas and the United States. But one college in Texas is looking at bringing a little relief to students, by no longer requiring them to purchase textbooks in the future.

Starting next Fall, West Texas A&M will no longer make students purchase textbooks for classes. The announcement was made recently by the West Texas A&M President Walter Wendler in a letter to students, faculty, and staff. According to the Texas Tribune, Wendler said the change is to help reduce the cost of a bachelor's degree and said that the change could present an opportunity to see how AI can be used in the classroom.
