Hundreds of laptops and WiFi devices will be handed out to San Diego City College students on Friday to help students succeed during online-only classes brought upon by the coronavirus pandemic.
The distribution is a big relief for 500 students who have been struggling with the transition to online-only classes since campuses shut down.
The devices were funded by Costco co-founder and City College alumnus, Jim Sinegal, and the San Diego City College Foundation.
K-12 and/or higher education students are also eligible for free internet access from Charter Communications. The company is offering free spectrum broadband and WiFi access for 60 days.
SDCC is accepting donations to anyone who would like to help the school get laptops for students. Click here for more information.
The distribution will begin at noon at the downtown campus.
