Great Idea: Appy Meals

Wouldn’t it be great if students could easily meet up with friends at mealtimes? Soon there will be an app for that. For their ENGS 12: Design Thinking class, Katherine Crane ’16, Catherine Donahoe ’15, and Stephan Johnson ’15 proposed a new app, Food@Now, to help improve the student experience at Dartmouth. “Planning meals currently demands time and effort, and there is a fear of appearing desperate for friends when reaching out,” the team explained in their class presentation. “On Food@Now, you have a buddy list of acquaintances showing you who is ready to eat when you are. This removes the vulnerability felt when reaching out and takes the hassle out of the process.” The team is now working to turn the app from idea to reality.
