While other students are returning to the classroom this fall, Wendy Holman is heading to Washington, D.C., where she will spend the semester working in the office of a member of the House of Representatives.
As students prepare to return to campus, they don't have to worry about buying the latest technology. They can rent it by the week, month or semester at CSU Monterey Bay's TechRent store.
This fall, the store is back for its fifth year, offering students an affordable alternative to costly purchases.
Since the spring of 2010, TechRent has saved students more than $616,000 in equipment purchase costs and generated nearly $66,000 in rental fees. That money supports the store's operations and covers the cost of purchasing additional technology.
