Supporting Our Students

March 30, 2020

We know that this transition has been particularly difficult for our students in need. Here are some local efforts to help our fellow Falcons:

  • Folsom Lake College purchased and loaned out 47 Google Chromebooks to students who did not have regular access to a computer or laptop. Staff members with the Equity Center also worked one-on-one with students who did not have internet or WiFi access to connect them with free or low-cost options.
  • $1,850 in grocery store gift cards are being mailed out to FLC students who expressed issues with food insecurity due to the current emergency situation.
  • The Los Rios Colleges Foundation has streamlined the Student Emergency Fund application process and it is now online. The Foundation has also lowered the maximum award amount to $500 to serve more students.

Do you not have access to food, clothing, housing, technology, or other basic needs as a result of the COVID-19 closures? Let us know how we can help you by completing this short FLC Student Basic Needs Survey. In addition, you may contact FLC's Equity Center for more information or view a listing of community resources.

Looking for a one-stop shop of available online and remote college resources? Check out flc.losrios.edu/onlineservices to access links to connect virtually with FLC departments and services, as well as helpful information on computer and technology resources (including free downloads of Microsoft Office and Adobe Creative Suite software) and free and low-cost internet and WiFi sources.
