Pastime U
Jacob & Cole



PastimeU is a pre-revenue student engagement software company, built for the complex needs of today’s students, universities, and businesses. For students, PastimeU will be a hub for information about events, activities, and non-academic resources on their college campus. For universities, PastimeU will collect data about how students are engaging with campus events and activities and give administrators insights they can use for event planning and marketing. And for businesses, PastimeU is looking to partner with businesses to offer incentives for student engagement in a “pocket points-type” model and will provide customer insights to business partners.


As students at the University of Northern Iowa, we’ve witnessed the digital revolution and recognize the need for a shakeup in the higher ed student engagement space. From the community, we’re looking to connect with local business partners and universities to pilot our solution.
