College Weekenders

After being featured in last year’s coolest college start-ups, David Wachtel started hearing from students across the country who were excited about bringing College Weekenders to their campuses. And after winning second place in his school’s business plan competition, Wachtel had the funds to do it. In the past year, he implemented programs at the University of Oregon, the University of Wisconsin, and Florida State University that organize discounted group trips for students who attend away football games. He plans to add one or two schools every year.
