Recent Berry College graduate Connor Garrett has developed a mobile application, StudyHubb, to help students find study partners.
Garrett came up with the idea while trying to balance a full school schedule with soccer, work and his social life, realizing he could consolidate studying and socializing. The app allows users to find study partners by using a familiar swipe feature to group like-minded peers. It also allows students to form study groups and works a bit like a social network for studies.
“I think this is going to help the student’s academic performance,” Garrett said. “When people are social it gives them an incentive to study more frequently.”
Production of the app was completely self-funded by the developers. It is expected to be available next spring. For more information about the app, please visit www.studyhubb.com.
Garrett, who is from Marietta, Georgia, now lives in California. He graduated from Berry last year with a bachelor’s degree in English. He created the app along with Alex Chung and Richard Fendler. Berry alumus Jawad Mazhir, who graduated in 2013, helped design the app.
