Most of the time, the phrase ‘Welcome back to school’ can also be interpreted as ‘Welcome back to allnighters, ramen noodles, empty wallets and mental breakdowns.’ So the question becomes, how can we make your lives a little easier?
With technology now officially becoming a ‘can’t live without’ item amongst young adults, Student-engagement mobile apps for colleges and universities have risen exponentially in popularity. With the creation of mobile food ordering, mobile e-commerce, nutrition mobile apps, and loyalty programs, students are now getting the help and guidance they need right at their finger tips—and they’re getting rewarded for it.
Below are the top 3 mobile app solutions being used on campus right now. These apps have acknowledged the unbreakable relationship you have with your phone, and decided to take that relationship to the next level.
School does this really cool thing where they steal all your money and leave you with nothing but 300 dollar text books you’re never going to read again, and a small piece of leftover dignity that only comes from knowing you are slightly more educated. Mint is a mobile app solution that allows you to track all the money that school is stealing from you. This app gives you a visual of where your money goes each month (food, bills, clothing etc) and with this information you are able to create budgets and even calculate your credit score. Sometimes you need a reminder when you’ve spend 200 dollars on food this month and it’s only the 8th.
Do you ever feel like your life revolves around notes? Writing them, and then staring at them… and then thinking about them in your free time? Well, Evernote wants to make the ‘note-taking’ process more enjoyable and efficient. The mobile app for colleges and universities allows students to create a ‘note’ which can essentially be anything; formatted text, a full webpage, photography, handwritten ‘ink’ and many more. It’s like class notes on steroids. You can take a note anywhere, and it will sync to all your mobile devices. With Evernote, you are able to search keywords throughout all your notes, even hand-written. Now if only there was an app to take notes and write tests for us….
Do you ever leave a class and think to yourself ‘I should really eat some lunch right now’, but decide to starve instead because you simply do not have time to wait in line for food? Hangry wants to end student starvation by not only getting food to you faster, but allowing you to skip the line entirely. Hangry is a mobile food ordering app for universities and colleges that allows you to order food from any school cafeteria right on your phone.

This mobile ordering solution also rewards you every time you skip the line with their loyalty program. Receive points every time you order that can be redeemed for all kinds of prizes!
With these mobile solutions on your side, you are essentially invincible against the strains of student life.
