Hello University is a platform under the company DimensionTech LLC. We are a startup group based at the University of Michigan.
We found that a lot of the students who come to the US universities or colleges to study, have trouble adjusting to the university culture (whether you're from the US or from another country). For international students, there are often miscommunications, slight language or accent barriers, or even cultural barriers with certain expressions. For students within the US, there are often times where students don't have much insight into the specific programs or culture. Some students have never had the opportunity to hear about higher education possibilities or see students who look like them in positions of success. We wanted to create an accessible mentorship platform to smooth the transition from high school to college for students around the world. We created an online platform where students could talk to US students in colleges to
Better understand university-life (academics and social)
Better understand a specific college/major
Learn about possible paths that they had never heard about
Help them practice their English
