In an announcement on the California State University website, the university announced that, as part of its new CSUCCESS (California State University Connectivity Contributing to Equity and Student Success) program, all first-year and new transfer students who register to participate in the initiative will receive an iPad Air, Apple Pencil, and Smart Keyboard Folio.
CSU Chancellor Joseph I. Castro said that the initiative will equip all students with a reliable piece of technology that will help support their time in college as well as prepare them for their future careers.
Susan Prescott, Apple's Vice President of Education and Enterprise Marketing, said that the iPad Air, paired with all of the education apps available in the App Store, is a key combination to support students.
Apple had announced a similar partnership with Virginia Union University and its 'Smart Campus' back in June.
