App Design, Winter 2015
Floormate is an app that helps college students alleviate awkward noise confrontation in dorms by encouraging them to share their noise preferences and check on others'. We pitched Floormate to the Residential Board as an effort to improve dorm life on campus, and have started talks with them to potentially make this a reality.
