Student Developed App, My Greek Study, is a Big Winner

MyGreek Study App Sells BigTrey McMeans, who is a member of Phi Sigma Kappa and pursuing a degree in Computer Science, partnered with Human Control Interaction major Nick Barbre to submit their product, the My Greek Study app, to the Idea Audition last fall.

“We received a lot of positive feedback from the Idea Audition,” McMeans said, “And a lot of interest as a whole in our company. Ever since the Idea Audition, the business has really grown. We had probably 35 or so organizations at the time of the Idea Audition and now we are up to 96 as of today.”

They have since sold the app to an enterprise in Gainesville, Florida.

Members of Greek organizations are required to maintain certain grade point averages. When members slip, study hours are enforced. In the past, this involved proctors and paper logs, but the My Greek Study app tracks students via GPS, then delivers the results as a simple, legible report. “It is a mobile application and website suite for logging academic study hours for Greek organizations,” McMeans said. “We’ve eliminated the manual ways of logging the hours and automated the process.”

McMeans and Barber have three additional apps in operation under their LLC. McMeans will graduate in spring of 2015 before moving to Gainesville to work with the acquiring company to integrate the app into their system.

“I don’t want to say it’s been overwhelming, but I have been very busy,” McMeans said.
