    9. 9. Customer Testimonials “ With OneCal, I love that I’ll be able to see and sync my personal calendar with all of my club calendars in one place.” - Anuj Verma, AEZ Business Fraternity & Project Rishi “ The student government at Cal has been trying to create a universal calendar of campus events for years, decades even. These projects are left half-done. We don’t have the resources or team to make it happen.” - Miraya Berke, ASUC & Dance Marathon “ This is a seriously useful service. The calendar with auto-text notifications will be a lot of help for Relay meetings. Also, being able to see all the other Greek [organization] schedules in one place will make coordinating KA events much less of a hassle.” - Joe Kim, Relay for Life & Kappa Alpha fraternity
