Is there a way to load linux on to a nexus 7 2012?

let me start my little story by telling you what has happened, my school laptop has died. the CPU fan kinked out and now it overheats in minutes. unfortunately without it I wont be able to keep working on school work until I get a replacement, and my gofundme is taking its sweet time(<-- not a plug). currently the only hardware that I have is a 2012 google nexus 7, that is currently running Cyanogen Mod. however this limits me to android apps, and as a computer science student that just wont do. is anyone aware of a distro that will load and run on a google nexus 7 that I can install an ide and run java/c code on?

Android is linux. You should root it and install one of the many debian apps
