What were the top three take-aways from #CampusChat with Michael Rihani, co-founder of Koofers, a company that provides academic support materials and planning resources to college students?
- Definition of a "koofer" – an old test or study guide (Koofers were once stored in coffers.)
- Definition of "permanently returned materials" – tests and study guides that have been returned to the students (not retained by the professors)
- Cost to students to use Koofers? – 100% free forever
About 300,000 college students use Koofers resources to help them prepare for tests, exams, plan their courses, and select professors. Koofers employs 100 college student campus reps. Their iPhone app has been downloaded about 1,000 times. A link to the entire transcript is below.
