With a growing number of classes meeting virtually at least some of the time, if not entirely online, every Wake Tech student needs a computer more than ever. The Care Center can provide new laptops to qualified students who don't have one so they can attend classes virtually, complete their assignments and access college services online.
Wake Tech used pandemic relief money to purchase the Lenovo Thinkpads, which run on a Windows 10 operating system, have 8 GB of memory and a 14-inch screen.
Library Services also has laptops available to loan out to enrolled students who do not qualify to receive a laptop otherwise. Similarly, the library can loan wireless hotspots to enrolled students who do not have reliable internet access to complete their coursework.
