ON THE STUDENT WAVE.

 

ON THE LOCAL WAVE.

The Student Wave aims to highlight local, student run businesses.

These local businesses are operated by your very neighbors, friends and family.

With anything from tutoring, to babysitting, photography, video editing, training, graphic design, music lessons, and college essay advising- you’re in trustworthy, native hands. 

 

ON THE INNOVATIVE WAVE.

Day-to-day popular businesses often overcharge for services that can be completed with an equal level of professionalism by local, student-run businesses.

Here at Student Wave, we aim to promote these businesses, and furthermore, delve into a topic which yields further importance: support of those in our community.

Assist students in gaining valuable work experience and skills needed for later in life

 

ON THE SUPPORTIVE WAVE. 

In addition to highlighting the myriad of talents offered by students, our company aims to manifest said capabilities and use them to benefit the people— our people. 

While delving into the limitless capabilities of our student-run businesses, we hope these organizations can greatly aid you, your family, and your friends.

Together, we can amplify the unity and inclusion of our eclectic town.

Together, we can make our town a diverse hub for activity.

Together, we can MAKE WAVES.
