Social network for admitted and current students


Backed by Silicon Valley's top education-tech VC's, Kickwheel's aim is to help colleges solve the growing interest to increase conversion rates on accepted students, instantly making them feel welcomed, and connected to the school's social welcoming process in a more modern, digital format, with the added longevity of continuing the social experience through enrollment and the student's entire trajectory within that school..


Utility was selected to design and develop the entire Kickwheel system, intended to be today’s leading college social network, allowing prospective, incoming and current students to communicate in a safe and efficient way. Complete with mobile applications built on iOS and Android, Kickwheel also incorporates a complex backend system and administrator dashboard portals for schools to manage everything themselves in a true SaaS ecosystem.

Get to know your class, let them meet you

Kickwheel allows users to utilize a custom directory sytem of prospective students, current students, and staff members. There's no better way to get to know your class and school than to talk to them in real-time.
