What is Sesame?
Sesame is a Chrome extension where you meet and hop in calls with study buddies, whether it's a 2 minute question or an 8 hour study marathon!
Friends you can actually reach
Yes, all of Stanford has Zoom. But when's the last time you hit someone up on there? On Sesame it's just two steps: Find someone whose door is open, and knock.
A cafe where people actually co-work
We're all sitting alone right now. Drop in the cafe and instead sit with people from Stanford, Harvard, Facebook and more, as you grind out your work together.
Stay connected, stay accountable

No more loneliness.
No more fear of falling behind.
We're all in this together.
