Jessup is excited to announce our new partnership with TREE OF LIFE BOOKSTORES:

TREE of LIFE Mission:

Tree of Life serves to offer retail products and textbooks that inspire, educate and equip higher education as well as churches and communities in which their stores are represented.

Guiding Values:

Integrity.  People.  Community.  Sustainability.

Tree of Life takes raw data and turns it into textbooks.  They take numbers, codes and spreadsheets and use them to propel students towards degree completion.   Tree of Life’s IT team works to make sure that Jessup’s flow of information comes in clean and comes out the other side to empower successful Jessup students.  Tree of Life’s data software is designed to sync up with Jessup’s system multiple times each day in order to update and integrate all data. Daily integration allows us to work with the best up-to-date information to keep students taken care of in real-time. Dropped classes, added classes and address updates:  it all comes together in data logistics.

Tree of Life is the textbook provider for Jessup!
