What If Prominent Penn Staters Had Tinder Profiles?

With an abundance of active guys and gals online during all hours of the day, Nittany Lions are no stranger to Tinder. According to its developers, the app is a “fun way to connect with new and interesting people around you.” In reality, it does wonders for people looking to hook up.

For those of you unfamiliar with the app (or just pretending you’ve never used it), it’s connected to your Facebook account. Potential matches see a picture of you, your first name and age, and a short bio about yourself if you choose to include one. If you see someone you like, you swipe right. If you’re not interested, you swipe left. Simple as that!
