Microsoft's never been shy about showing students some love, from its reduced-fee Office University program to multiple Surface offers. Let's add another example to that list: The company's Student Advantage program is now up and running, offering those enrolled at participating educational institutions free access to Office 365. Originally announced back in October, Microsoft's service is open to some 35,000 schools across the globe -- with the caveat being that the institutions' paid staff must be using Office 365 ProPlus or Office Professional Plus. Eligible students get access to the Office 365 ProPlus version, which costs about $12 per month. Considering you pretty much can't avoid word processing (not to mention Excel and PowerPoint) during your career as a student, it's not a bad deal. Head to the source link for more information.
