    About the Basic Needs Center: At the BNC, our student team works together to build community, share resources, develop strategies and have fun along the way. BNC Student Leaders use their experience and training to help other students find resources and create a plan to make it to graduation in an increasingly expensive college environment. When students visit the BNC, they learn about the main campus food pantry, the BNC Textbook Lending Program, housing strategies, and other resources funded by the student fees they pay each term, oftentimes over a cup of coffee or snack.
