UC Davis Bookstore Grad Faire 2010

UC Davis Bookstore Grad Faire 2010

The time is coming yet again…grad time. Many will be leaving the hallowed confines that are known as UC Davis and venturing out amongst the free world to stake their claim. Before they do though, they really should head to the UC Davis Bookstore Grad Faire 2010 (March 10th, 2:00PM – 6:00PM) to see what kinds of goodies they can get before they call it quits.

So why is someone from the TechHub writing about a Grad Faire? Well…because we will be there! We will be showcasing Incase Laptop sleeves (still $29.99 for the moment…they will unfortunately be rising in price in the near future), Dell exclusive machines available only to those at UC Davis, and Adobe boxed software. What’s the big deal about Adobe Boxed software (besides the fact you save about 60% off retail)? If you come by the table during the Grad Faire, we will give you a coupon for 5% any Adobe Boxed product we have in stock (limited to one per customer, and limited to stock on hand). While there, make sure you run by all these companies and groups below.
