OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.
