A student-led nonprofit launched earlier this year has so far brought hundreds of refurbished laptops to homeless students who’ve struggled to keep up academically with their peers. The organization, called Bridging Tech, was started by Stanford University seniors Isabel Wang and Margot Bellon in April.

The group has donated 437 refurbished computers to so far, according to the university.   Betsy Foresman has more.

While some institutions are inviting undergraduates back to live on campus in January after being largely virtual in the fall, others have announced they will make minimal changes in their COVID-19 plans from fall to spring.
