I'm trying to think of a catchy word to use instead of a study/learning groups. The word is used in an informal context and I'm trying to think of something creative.

Something along the lines of 'circles' etc.

EDIT: I thought I'd provide the context to help people. I'm creating a very basic academic social network for my University where users are added to their course 'study groups' but are also free to create their own groups. I like the Google+ circle idea, but I don't want to rip that off.

Specific to a subject? –  cornbread ninja 麵包忍者 Mar 19 '12 at 14:59
    
@cornbreadninja No not really, the word doesn't necessarily have to include something relating to learning. Maybe just an unusual word for a group of people. –  Alex Mar 19 '12 at 15:09

Does it need to be only one word, or a short phrase? I suggest "Rink", or "Think Rink".

I like where you're going... Ideally one word due to the nature of the context I'll be using the word. –  Alex Mar 19 '12 at 15:07
