GradeGuru, an online resource for students to class notes by classmates, has pledged to donate money to the Quinnipiac chapter of the American Marketing Association through Sunday, Nov. 6 in an effort to help members attend the 32nd Annual International Collegiate Conference.
GradeGuru will donate $1 to AMA for every Quinnipiac student that registers with the site and $3 for every set of notes uploaded.
Attending the conference will help AMA improve their chapter, wcompete in various competitions and network with other chapters from around the country. The donations they get from GradeGuru will also be put toward speakers coming to Quinnipiac.
“GradeGuru is a third-party study network that helps students study for exams,” said Ronald King, vice president of promotions for AMA. “It’s an external source of information for when you can’t make it to your professor or the Learning Center.”
Students are rewarded for uploading and rating class notes with gift cards for Apple, Best Buy and more.
“It helps to fill in the blanks when studying,” Shy Smith, a junior health science studies major, said.
AMA, a sector of the School of Business, is part of a national organization and brings speakers to Quinnipiac to help students improve their interview skills and market themselves better when looking for a job.
Currently AMA holds an award for third place in the nation for best overall website. Attending the conference in New Orleans will help AMA become seen as a more legitimate organization and will attract more members.
AMA is open to any student with any focus of study.
