About

CampusWise was built by two Old Dominion University students in our dorm rooms in Spring and Fall 2014. By the end of our freshman year at ODU, we were both frustrated with the overpriced books sold everywhere, and were tired of spending hours searching through posts on Facebook trying to find other students selling the books we needed. We finally decided that there had to be a better way, and that's when CampusWise was born. By the end of our freshman year we had fully invested ourselves in making the site. We hope you find the site makes your textbook buying experience easier, because as college students, we already have enough to worry about.

We just launched at ODU this semester and we couldn't believe the results. We had over 300 students sign-on, and together they bought over $1,200 in books and saved over $3,400 compared to what they would've paid at the university bookstore! We were blown away from the responses that we got from students! Students told us about how much money they had saved, how much easier it was, and how much they appreciated that there was finally a better way for them to get their books. 

At CampusWise.com we have two goals: to save college students money, and make life easier. It's just that simple. That's why we started the site, and we will never stop working to get you the books you need, at cheaper prices than your campus bookstore and other online sellers.

Risks and challenges

Although we had a huge start, we are still trying to make sure that we can keep growing CampusWise and bring some exciting features to the site. To do this were hoping to at least get help covering our costs so that we can work on bringing CampusWise to other local college campuses, and launching our App.
