NE faculty and students developed a dating app feature to be released in June 2021 on WebAdvisor that will allow students to find matches amongst the TCC community.

NE faculty and students created a dating app for TCC students looking to find the perfect match on campus, virtually.

The app is called Cupid Campus of Love. It is scheduled to launch June 2021, and info about how to use the app will show up when students register for courses on WebAdvisor.

The app is free for all TCC-registered students to access and use. NE student Trent Blake said the app was very tasteful to stu-dents with many different personalities.

“It’s like a pot of gumbo except with many different personalities mixed up and stirred,” Blake said.

Some students who are currently in re-lationships are taken back by how many stu-dents are already active on the site.

“I thought the idea of a dating app for students on campus would be a desperate look attempt for a relationship,” Ashley Mo-rales said.

The app allows students to go to different profiles and select a person. If they like what they see then they would leave a heart on the page.

The number of hearts given on a profile page determine a match.

The app will then automatically scan personalities from both profiles to detect if it’s a match or not a match. Once a match is found, the app will alert both profiles. From there, the two matches can set up a date.

At the end of the semester, TCC faculty and students from the design program will see how the results went and how many reviews were good and bad to determine whether the dating app could be used in the future.

“The thought process going into this idea was much easier than people would have ex-pected,” Cooper said. “The hardest part was seeing if the students would buy into the idea and give the app a chance to see if it would be a success or fail.” Northeast Campus Assiant Professor Amy Copper created the app.
