Pilot Program with Drexel University to Open to Students Nationwide

Port Chester, NY, Feb 4, 2011 –/– A computer crash during finals. An overdue paper on the other side of campus. Music and movies at home when you want them in your dorm room. These are just a few of the realities college students face in a digital world. With today’s launch of a pilot program at Drexel University, MiMedia sets out to transform how this generation enjoys, manages and protects its personal media and files—inside and outside of the classroom.

“Always ahead of the curve when it comes to the alignment of education and technology, Drexel is the perfect partner for MiMedia’s introduction to the college and university network,” said Erik Zamkoff, Founder & CEO of MiMedia. “We’ve all heard horror stories about computer crashes instantly erasing years worth of pictures, videos, music and documents, and this can be devastating to college students who rely primarily on computers. We want to put students’ minds at ease and make sure they don’t panic in the aftermath of a hard-drive crash.”

Students of Drexel University in Philadelphia will receive a free semester of MiMedia, allowing them to access their entire hard drives on a single portal from any web-enabled computer or mobile device, anytime and anywhere. The cloud service makes bulky and disaster prone external hard drives extinct, and allows for the easy sharing of digital media files.

“MiMedia addresses a very real problem that all students face,” said James Tucker, Drexel’s Senior Vice President for Student Life and Administrative Services. “We have access to an abundance of information but often lack the tools to protect and manage our digital lives. We are excited to offer Drexel students this service and anticipate the value it will provide in an educational setting.”

College students nationwide can sign up for their free semester of MiMedia at:
