Microsoft Office Now Free for Students

  • Microsoft has apparently gotten tired of having their software hacked and illegally copied. The company is finally making its Office 365 software available for free…to students.

    Previously offered with a student discount, programs like Word, Excel and PowerPoint will now be free to US students who sign up for a subscription with a university e-mail address. A similar opportunity will be made available for teachers and professors.

    Along with access to the software, subscribed students will also be able to use 1TB of free storage on OneDrive, Microsoft’s cloud.

    Microsoft’s announcement is a milestone for students – they will now have one less excuse to procrastinate and hand in their papers late.
