Free services from third parties:  Every day we hear about vendors who are offering their services for free during this difficult time. They range from free online textbook access, to free broadband. While we are not in a position to recommend or vouch all of these, we do want to make you aware of some of them.  Please be cautious, as always, when accepting “free” third-party services.
