It's Thursday. It's 6:30pm. As a college student, I have tons of work -- but I'm on Facebook. I'm on Youtube. And I'm gonna spend at least a few minutes on Buzzfeed.

We've all been there. Studying by yourself is a bore -- and to distract ourselves from this boredom, we waste hours messing around the inter-realms. I personally study better with a friend around -- having someone working around me motivates me to also get work done. Having a study buddy also makes the experience a little more bearable.

It's not practical to text every single one of your friends and see who's free to study with you between 6:30 and 8:00. With StudyJam, you're just a tap away. StudyJam is our way of connecting students with their friends.

This story was actually inspired by an unhealthy facebook addiction and an uncanny lack of focus. The target user is every person that studies. We hope to expand this and use email verification to restrict access to .edu email addresses.
