Incoming freshman at Northeast State Community College will have another tool to help with school.

The iNortheast Initiative will hand out iPads for Tennessee Promise and other new, full-time freshman.

The goal is to change the educational experience at Northeast State.

School officials said the iPads minis will help lower the costs of textbooks, improve skills for the job market and give access to student support services.

The Northeast State Foundation approved a one-time investment of about $340,000 from federal title-three funds to underwrite the project this year.

The school’s plan is to expand the iPad initiative over the next two to three years until it’s fully integrated.
