A coalition of students from University of California, Cal State and community college campuses is asking administrators for more help coping with the coronavirus crisis.

The California Students Higher Education Advocacy Round Table wants campuses to help students with housing on and off campus, assistance for disabled students, access to campus wi-fi and other support, the group said in a letter sent on Wednesday to top administrators at California's higher education systems.

Amine Al Moznine, a member of the new group and a student at De Anza College in Cupertino, said:

“This way we combine all of our best thoughts and work together to advocate for the same goal, which in my mind means we’re far more likely to get the results we desire."
