BOCA RATON, Fla., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TransMedia Group (www.transmediagroup.com) announced today it was retained to publicize Study Buddy Today (http://www.studybuddytoday.com), the first and only platform to combine social networking and e-learning for accelerated learning by online groups of college students.
TransMedia said it will focus publicity on Study Buddy Today's unique "Collegiate Life-Stream," which has made the platform the fastest growing collegiate social network pairing students' with tutors and peers for more effective learning.
TransMedia said it will tell the story of how Study Buddy Today was started by college student Matthew Vinas, the visionary behind this collegiate website who came up with the idea after dealing with study challenges.
TransMedia will highlight how Vinas, like many students, suffered from Attention Deficit Disorder, so to streamline his studies he formed a virtual study hub, with a social media 'feel' offering everything from tutors and study groups to personalized school spirit profiles, all in a one-stop shop; different from any other social media or tutoring service currently available.
"As a college student dealing with ADD, I understood the difficulties of achieving high marks in college. I realized how difficult it was to find help late at night. I usually studied in groups, but at a late hour there was no way to get the group together. So I thought there has to be an easier way - virtually. So I created Study Buddy Today."
TransMedia Group will publicize Study Buddy Today's slogan: "Studying is important, but your collegiate life stream is everything." Publicity will explain how "My U," an online study buddy feature, acts as a revolving update on campus activities, events, and social interactions at each student's college.
Study Buddy Today benefits students and tutors alike as tutors can plug into a vast network of students spread across multiple schools, Study Buddy Today also offers tutors a tool box of technology, including video chat system and a file-sharing program. The platform allows tutors and students to accomplish collegiate goals from their respective homes.

- The University of Florida
