Ordering Course Materials

Course materials and textbooks for your fall courses will be visible in Bennington College’s academic information system, Populi, which you'll have access to starting in mid-July. You’ll be able to see the course materials on each course’s “Info” page within Populi—just click on the name of the course in your schedule, and make sure you’re on the “Info” tab. Students are encouraged to review these pages well before the beginning of term, and to order all required course materials from a vendor of their choosing, before the term begins. Although a limited number of books will be available for each class in the on-campus bookstore, these are primarily intended to facilitate the add/drop process.
