Educating this many students takes a lot of books and supplies, and the main bookstore in the Coffman Memorial Union on the Twin Cities campus is one of the top 5 in the country in terms of size (46,000 square feet) and sales revenue (more than $38 million annually). Operating a bookstore this large takes a significant number of staff, including 100-150 student employees on average, peaking around 300 student employees during the busiest times of the year. Students are employed across several departments including security, customer service, and textbooks, gaining valuable work experience while working on their degrees.
