 Post subject: Creating multiple new struct objects

I am writing a program that allows a user to select a student's name and shows the information of the student inside text entries. The information is in a file and I was thinking about using a struct to store information and using a hash table to get a student's info when the user selects a student.

I am having trouble implementing this because I am unsure how to create new student struct objects every time a new "student " is read from a file.
Can anyone post a suggestion on how I can get started? Thanks.

Maybe something along these lines. Note, I'm just typing this, it's note tested or anything:

typedef struct
  gchar *first_name;
  gchar *last_name;
  /* etc... */
} Student;

Student *
student_new (const gchar *first, const gchar *last)
  Student *s = g_slice_new (Student);
  s->first_name = g_strdup (first);
  s->last_name = g_strdup (last);

  /* 'first' and 'last' strings from calling function can be freed */

  return s;

student_free (Student *s)
  if (s->first_name) g_free (s->first_name);
  if (s->last_name) g_free (s->last_name);
  g_slice_free (Student, s);
