Simpson College Launches Online Bookstore and New Spirit Shop

Simpson College, a private liberal arts college located in Iowa, transitioned from an on-campus physical bookstore to an online bookstore to support the Spring 2023 Semester. Integrated with Simpson’s Student Information System, students will enjoy a customized experience through single sign-on. With this option enabled, students can see the required and optional course materials and textbooks for their specific course schedules. 

The on-campus store, formerly the bookstore, has fully transformed into the Simpson College Spirit Shop and now offers a more extensive inventory of spirit wear, home goods, and essentials. 

CEO at Akademos, Raj Kaji said, “Simpson College offers innovative learning opportunities and focuses on students that we’re looking forward to supporting. The online bookstore can help drive down costs for students while also offering technology that helps administrators encourage faculty to adopt lower-cost materials semester after semester, and be made aware of student behaviors to ensure student success.” 

Akademos supports a number of Iowa higher education institutions including, but not limited to:

  • Buena Vista University, Storm Lake
  • Central College, Pella 
  • Coe College, Cedar Rapids 
  • Mercy College of Health Sciences, Des Moines
  • Northeast Iowa Community College, Calmar
  • Wartburg College, Waverly
