“Our app, ppl, is a way for students to be better connected to accurate information about the things going on around their campus.

The app will feature a map where pins, with a variety of symbols and colors, will mark where events are taking place. Students are able to mark events or various other things that they see in order to allow others to be aware of them.”

– Wesley Nelson, co-founder of “ppl”
