It’s been a long time since our last post, almost 6 months! In this time, we have been working very hard on our new venture, CollegeOnly. For all of you who do not know, it is with tremendous pride that we are able to tell you guys that GoodCrush is now a fully functional feature on the CollegeOnly website!
So check it out!
If you’re like me, you spend most of your summer dog days in front of the computer reading random crap on the internet. Now, you can get your fix all in one place— the GoodCrush Summer Lovin’ blog!
The Summer Lovin’ blog is your go-to spot for everything you need to get you through the summer. You can find out where the cool parties are, watch awesome videos, learn about great new products, and generally entertain yourself for hours at a time.
We’ll be adding new features all week, so keep checking back on the regular!
Our most awesome project yet begins in less than two weeks…
For those who don’t know - last month we were given a pretty sweet award by the Kairos Society, who recognized GoodCrush with their Entrepreneurship in Marketing award at their annual Kairos Society Summit in NYC.
The event was a blast, as we got to present GoodCrush on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, as well as wine & dine (well, minus the wine) on board a cruise ship circling the Hudson River.
Even better - the award offered us the opportunity to participate in the Churchill Club Panel for Young Entrepreneurs, which was held at Microsoft Headquarters in Mountainview, California!
At the panel, we shared the stage with some of the most mind-blowingly innovative student entrepreneurs you’ll ever meet - and were moderated by Patricia Sellers, Editor at Large of Fortune Magazine. The chance to meet Patti was a tremendous experience, and she even wrote an awesome blog post about the event for CNN.
In today’s episode of Our-Tshirts-Are-Really-Awesome, we have Jennie from Tulane!
As you can see, GoodCrush tees are best enjoyed with shrimp. Or mini-lobsters. Or whatever the heck those are.
If any more of you out in collegeland have one of our shirts, send us a photo. Right now.
It’s been a great time lately here at GoodCrush as we gear up towards a big summer. We’ve been looking for new office space, preparing for the “Leaders of Tomorrow” summit this weekend in California, and, yes - playing with butterflies!
This little guy was trapped in our office for an entire day, so we decided to set him free on our way to lunch.
This crazy tune was recently performed at the Princeton Triangle Club’s spring show, which was a spoof of West Side Story. We’re working on getting hold of a video, but for now, here’s a script:
Good Crush, Bad Crush, Red Crush, Blue Crush

Lights up on two friends, PAUL and CHRIS, and, on the other side of the room, two friends, PAULINE and CHRISTINE. Dialogue often seems to overlap.
Oh man, Chris, I think I found her.
Christine! Big news!
Who? Who did you find?
Ooh! Big news! A new boy? Big new boy news?
PAUL AND PAULINE
I think I found…the one.
RandomDorm.com launch in 3 hours - meet cool college students win an iPad!
See you on at 9PM EST!
Here’s a quick video of Josh giving the scoop on tomorrow’s RandomDorm launch.
I picked out that shirt for him.
Tomorrow night is going to be awesome. If you have not had the opportunity play with an iPad yet, it is shiny and beautiful, and does all sorts of quirky stuff. You want one.
All you have to do is find Josh while surfing RandomDorm. He’ll have three hats - guess which one the iPad is in, answer a few questions, and its yours.
RandomDorm itself is extremely sweet. It’s nothing like the beta version we’ve had up thus far - the new RandomDorm features a new layout and much improved connectivity.
The opportunity to chat with college students around the world is now at your fingertips.
Join us tomorrow, Thursday May 6th at 9PM EST, on RandomDorm.com!
That’s our very own Matt, having the time of his life on RandomDorm.com
Very exciting things to come to RD, so stay tuned! Fo sho
Last week I took a trip to Boston and decided to swing by Boston College to meet with our campus reps Nick and Ron.
Everyone was in bright spirits as BC just won the Frozen Four (national NCAA hockey championships).
We grabbed some lunch and chatted about how GoodCrush was going on campus and came up with a few innovative ways to get more people involved based on prior feedback.
Along the way, we ran into two frosh ladies that are GoodCrush fans.
Those are some classy t-shirts.
The Startup Job Fair wasn’t the only thing we did on Friday. We also sponsored the after-party for EXPO— NYU’s premier fashion show!
The event was held at the swanky Hotel Rivington, and helped raise over $500 for Room to Read— a charity that partners with local communities in the developing world to establish libraries, create local language children’s literature, and other awesome stuff.
Apologies for the craptastic photos - they were taken with Josh’s Blackberry..
On Friday we attended the NYC Startup Job Fair, which was held at AOL Headquarters (only three blocks south of our office). AOL’s offices are pretty bad ass, with weird triangular glass rooms all over the place.
The event was great fun and the applicants all seemed super qualified. Most of them knew even more about GoodCrush than I did..
(side note - we’re currently in the hunt for summer interns, so if you’re interested and in the NYC area, feel free to contact us!)
We shared the space with dozens of startups and even a few not-so-startups, like bit.ly and Etsy.
My favorite part of the event though has to be this photo:
