Overview
The Challenge

Students are missing out on connections that can last a personal and professional lifetime. The social capital that they build at college or university is crucial to their future success. But the job market has changed, and young people today are less likely than previous generations to harness their personal connections to gain employment. 

On top of this shift, students are now facing more uncertainty in the face of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Higher education can feel intimidating or isolating at the best of times, and increased remote learning has only amplified these feelings.

Our Solution

Many social media apps tap into the power of connection, but none are designed specifically for students to build their academic networks. We designed a mobile app to give students a feeling of control over their academic decision-making, while building their social capital. 

With Mighty, they can easily visualize and track their degrees, while gaining insight into the academic paths of other students. They can learn more about their classmates, find students with similar courses or interests, or be prompted to meet someone entirely different. They can confidently chat anonymously within their classes, or connect with one another directly. Students and their institutions have the muscle already, we’re just helping them flex it.
