Our commitment with universities
The underlying problem
According to the American College Health Association
+50% students feel very lonely.
+10% students considered suicide.
If that wasn't sad enough, United Way reports
+10% of students dropout at european universities.
€0.4 - 20 BILLION
university systems lose annually due to dropouts.
After being isolated for such a long time during the pandemic, young adults have lost out on developing social skills in the most important part of their self development.
Positive relationship backed by a strong and supportive learning community is key to achieving academic success.
Our algorithm matches students who share similar interest and moods. They don´t need to belong to the same faculty. And, of corse, there is no discrimination for social, sexual orientation, race, age or gender reasons.
Students are connected to other students who have been previously verified through their university email. This created a tight-knit university community and fosters a more unified school spirit..
Students will meet each other through the events and activities (conferences, meetups, presentations, workshops, etc.) that they propose themselves, and the ones arranged by the university. Interactive calendar feature is in development.
From the beginning of their uni experience, students will start creating their community on campus:
A place to learn, grow, achieve success and be happy!
Beginnings are always tricky, especially for young adults whose identities are malleable and can be shaped by singular experiences. We want to make that process easier by working with you and your onboarding programs.
Connou will help your institution by facilitating your students to meet their fellows on campus from the first day of their university experience. By offering them the possibility of joining activities and
events they may feel interested in, they will meet like-minded humans, which will prepare the path to create a supportive learning community and increase their academic success.
Your institution will be able to promote events and activities organised by your departments and students will always be in touch to join them with a friend, new or old. In this way, students also feel cared for and supported by the university itself.
