What does "student-made" mean?

The Butler University Bassoon Reed Company (BUBRC) is unique.  It is a partnership between the Butler University Bassoon Studio and students in the Butler College of Business. Butler University is the only school we are aware of that has a student-run reed business. All products are made by current Butler Bassoon students using materials, processes, and specifications designed and approved by the Butler bassoon faculty. These students are highly skilled and well-trained in the various phases of reed making. (Bassoon students at Butler University are all enrolled in weekly reed-making classes as a part of their curriculum. They are in direct contact with Butler’s bassoon professors, who oversee each student’s reedmaking education.) When you buy reeds from BUBRC, you are assured of getting quality products from active bassoonists who know bassoons and bassoon reeds. You’ll also be helping these students gain valuable business skills and professional experience.
