'Friendsy' is a new social networking app that helps college students meet new people. While many students use social networking services, these platforms are not exclusive to their campus community. This app makes it easier to meet new people by limiting its services to an existing community of students.

Friendsy uses a Tinder-style platform to help college students connect with one another. The app allows users to specify what they are looking for, meaning the app can be used to find new friends or potential dates. For those who are interested in dating, the app provides a number of different options for reaching out to potential matches. The app also requires users to provide their college email, ensuring that only students are able to access the service.

The goal of the student-only platform is to give users a new way to meet people outside of the classroom setting.
