New York University medical students received life-changing news on Thursday — the School of Medicine will cover full tuition going forward for all current and future students, regardless of need or merit. The stunning announcement was made Thursday morning at the end of the annual “White Coat Ceremony”.
It’s hard to learn on an empty stomach. Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT has a foodshare program called The Pantry, where food donations are collected and distributed to students who should be more hungry for knowledge than for food.
Donated food and household supplies go from bins around the campus to an actual pantry where “insecure” students can get them to help them through the semester.
