Getting members of the NYU community connected through sports, games and other face-to-face activities should be much easier.
Finding others who share your passion and schedule has always been a difficult task. Olympi.ca/nyu is an app that can help members of the NYU community (students, alumni, faculty, staff and family) to do so in the most convenient way. Users first indicate activities of interest, skill level and weekly availability. Then, they can start sending invitations or just wait to be invited. Once a match is made, an event with the info is created where participants may also chat.
The app will eventually be open to other organizations. Yet, due to time frame, proof of concept, etc., this prototype focuses only on the NYU community.
