About FM

An education that will take you as far as you want to go.


Raider Trader College Store

The FM College Store was created in 1969 to provide you with all the required course materials and other educational items needed for your success. In January 2014 the store was renamed The Raider Trader and in 2016 a new store was built.

The store has a beautiful space that offers computers, technology, emblematic clothing & gifts, health & beauty items and snacks. You can find all your school supplies here and of course, all your required textbooks, new, used, rental and digital offerings. The Raider Trader is the hub on campus for all your college needs. Our knowledgeable staff is here to assist you in having a pleasant shopping experience.
