I received an email last week from a PR firm representing CollegeTonight.com. I don’t know the site, but it was started by two Emory students. From the email:
What does it take to start a business while in college? While many students are juggling social lives, parties, papers and exams (and not always in the right order), the founders of CollegeTonight.com have investors, business plans and vast marketing agendas keeping them up at night. Meet Zach Suchin and Jason Schutzbank. While still students at Emory University (Jason is a currently Junior and only 21), these two friends launched a social network that caught on fast and quickly became the must click site for what to do on campus (and off). After another two years of development, CollegeTonight is now a publicly-traded company and serves as a “social sidekick” at over 110 college campuses, encouraging its members to GET ON, GET UP, GET OUT.
