Former students on a mission to solve the very problems they experienced

As undergraduates, here are some of the things our team experienced:


  • Professors struggling to engage their students;

  • Students of the same class pass each other on the sidewalk without saying hello;

  • Students departing the classroom and going their separate ways without a means to remain connected; 

  • Email responses days, even weeks, after relevancy; threatening our enrollment opportunities and our ability to gather key information when we needed it;

  • We sat in classrooms as professors pulled up their e-mail inbox only to see 12,000+ unread emails; 

  • We lived in residence halls where we only knew 5-10 of the 200+ students living right above or beneath us; 

  • We built a network that, when all said and done, could have been 50x larger; 


We met and conversed with hundreds of other students who shared our experiences. We interacted with students who broke down in tears because they failed to find their sense of belonging.

So we set out to fix it.
