Chattanooga State Community College students who do not own their own technology equipment may be afraid of falling behind and quickly become discouraged; however, those students now have a new option thanks to the Student Technology Pantry.

"Before COVID-19, we were not fully aware of the deep technology divide that was present on our campus," Dr. Rebecca Ashford, Chattanooga State president, said. "Now we are keenly aware that many of our students do not have access to the technology resources that have become essential to learning."

The Student Technology Pantry is where students can borrow what they need to complete their classes, obtain the necessary credentials for area jobs, and graduate.

The pantry was stocked through local, donated funds to include laptops, webcams, hotspots, calculators, and other components used by students to successfully complete their coursework.
