  • Company Description
    Chegg, whose name is a combination of “chicken” and “egg,” was conceived out of the founders’ frustration with the used book-buying policies at their university bookstore – which would pay students a fraction of the cover price and then resell used text books at a large markup. After helping thousands of college students on campuses west of the Mississippi find cheap textbooks, tickets and tenants, Chegg.com is now available at a lot more campuses.
