CollegeWikis, which raised $2M in a funding round this fall led by HighBAR Ventures, has now become Regroup.com.
Regroup.com gives students a school-wide discussion group with both email list and web functionality, and allows them to create full-featured groups for their class year, dorm, courses, and more. Students have created thousands of articles on CollegeWikis; these articles are now being discussed by students on Regroup.
The site began as â€œinformation for students by students.â€ Before long, students were using the site to post messages to classmates â€“ events, announcements, questions, and more. When users go to the site, they can browse thousands of messages that students have posted from hundreds of schools. The company aims to make old-fashioned email groups a thing of the past through its full-featured group functionality.
