Yalies now have one more way to spend their time avoiding homework, or to seek help from those who understand the intricacies of supply and demand curves.
Circa:Yale is a new website launched on Tuesday by Daniel Petkevich ’12 that allows students working away in libraries or lecture halls to chat with nearby peers. A student slogging through his or her intro to microeconomics course can commiserate with another student slogging through his or her microeconomics course, or maybe even find a third student who’s whizzing through his or her microeconomics course to give the first two help.
Petkevich said in an email that he created Circa:Yale with the knowledge gained from the student-run lecture and workshop series on web development known as HackYale. Startup culture keeps on chugging.
