Berry Graduate Develops Study App
Release Date: November 30, 2016
A recent Berry College graduate has developed a mobile
application that helps students find study partners called “StudyHubb.”
The idea came to Connor Garrett when he tried to balance a full
load of courses, soccer and work with a social life. It was then that he began
to develop the idea to consolidate studying and socializing. Garrett hopes that
the app will let students find individuals to study with by using a swipe
feature and allow students to create study groups with like-minded peers and
function like an academic social network.
“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.”
Students can visit www.studyhubb.com for
more information on the app or to subscribe to get updates.
The app’s production has been completely self-funded by the
developers and is tentatively set to launch in early in the spring of 2017.
Garrett, who is from Marietta, Ga. and now lives in California,
graduated from Berry in December 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in English. The
app, StudyHubb was created with Alex Chung and Richard Fendler. Garrett and
Fendler work for ZipRecruiter and Chung works at Lead Forensics. Berry
alumnus Jawad Mazhir, who graduated in 2013, was instrumental in the design
by Public Relations Student Candler Lowe
