Kansas Veterinary Educational Supply Service, or KVESS, is a student-owned and operated bookstore. KVESS is run by several students from each class at the veterinary school. It was created in the 1970’s by students who were sick of paying too much for their books. KVESS is a non-profit organization and all proceeds made from the sale of textbooks and all other items go directly back to the students every semester. KVESS has decreased the mark-up on textbooks significantly compared to that of the other bookstores in town.
