This college mentor platform matches current students with curious applicants with similar interests. StudentConnect tackles the life-altering decision of picking the right school for post-secondary education. The matchmaking organization helps university applicants get advice on potential majors, course work and future ambitions while also improving their chances of getting into college. Mentors also earn money using this scheme by helping others get in and answering their queries. So far 73 schools are participating with 217 mentors.

The college mentor platform connects the pair via a half an hour video chat. This gives the applicants the chance to ask questions about the academic institution, its courses and application process. StudentConnect mentors earn some extra spending money without even having to leave their dorms just by giving advice.
