See why higher ed institutions love Unibuddy
“Unibuddy Community allowed students to form their own friendship groups and meet new people before enrolling. It took the pressure off at the start of term.”
“As a product it’s very user-friendly. It’s pretty intuitive. You set up the community, you add the students, you set up the groups. It just makes sense. It’s pretty straightforward.”
