Inspiration

Coming to Boston as freshman, we were so excited for countless busy weekends and nights on the town. However, our situation wasn’t exactly that – we were spending a lot of time holed up in our dorms. This wasn’t for lack of things to do in the city, but because college events were buried in email blasts or hard to find on social media. After interviewing over 300 Boston students about this, the problem became clear – there is no platform where college events are localized or where attendees can find each other prior to the event.
