1. Is the service free to use?

    Yes! The service is completely free to use for students and student organizations. We are students ourselves and strongly believe a student life app is all about providing value to students.

  2. Why are you building this app?

    We are developing this app to connect students and student unions across the country. Our aim is to allow all fellow students in Canada to be able to communicate with each other and get great deals (because we deserve it!). At the same time we want student unions to use cool technologies to engage students with — while being environmentally friendly!

  3. How do I use OOHLALA to send events to my Facebook page?

    After you create an event on the control panel, you will get an option asking you to push that event to your Twitter and Facebook page. Events sent to Facebook display as regular Facebook events with an image (if uploaded) and relevant information.

  4. What's your stance on privacy?

    We always respect and protect your privacy. Unlike other student union apps that sell your personal information for advertising, data collected is usually in an aggregate manner and will never include your name.

  5. Does the app display ad banners?

    No, our app is spam free and will always be kept that way. The only interaction students will have with advertisers is when they provide an exclusive deal or promotion to students. We believe that instead of spam, merchants should provide us something of value if they wish to gain our loyalty.

  6. How do you guys make money?

    We generate revenues by working with brands and merchants to provide you with great deals, and by providing premium features for student associations. Our goal is to deliver engagement through value.

  7. I have heard that you guys are introducing gaming?

    Yes we are! Pretty soon you will be able to reward students with badges and cool content for showing up to your events and being active on campus.

  8. I have a small feature request for my student union, can I ask you guys to make it?

    Absolutely! The only reason we exist is to make student life more awesome. Feel free to email us for any requests and we will do our best to fulfill it.

  9. Wow! Why are you guys so awesome?

    Because we are students too ;)
