Friends with Wazzup!
With the emergence of COVID-19, the "traditional college experience" was no more. It became so much harder to meet new friends and find communities. We want to change that.
Our goal is to help students form connections with other students in the time of social distancing and isolation due to COVID-19.
Our solution is Wazzup!
Wazzup is an app that aims to connect students at the University of Rochester with new people by sorting its users into groups based on common interests. With just a few clicks, you'll be apart of a few cliques! With Wazzup you can effortlessly find groups of interest and make new friends without the risk of transmitting COVID-19.
Over the last few months, our team has been regularly meeting and designing Wazzup! We began our process by brainstorming ideas on how we could improve the University of Rochester. Once we settled on a form of community outreach, we crafted a survey. The results we procured confirmed that many people miss community and being social. From there, we created Wazzup and began working on this very website and our app!
