Mays Business School is affectionately known by students and alumni alike as the crown jewel of West Campus, arguably even of all campus. As junior Marketing major, Dee Roberts puts it, “Mays is the pinnacle of greek life- banner holding is at a minimum and who you know affects how well you do. Who you sit next to and what GroupMes you are in have the biggest impact on your grades, other than TutorJohn.”
Within the halls of the Wehner building and its annex, West Campus Library, countless conversations and interactions are taking place at any given moment. In order to capitalize on the high impact networking potential, Mark B. Houston, the head of the Mays Marketing Department, has unveiled the next big thing within the core of networking within Mays: MaysMeet.com.
MaysMeet.com is a tool for business students to reach the ultimate goal of networking: to link up after getting LinkedIn. MaysMeet.com will be a dating service exclusive to business students and will offer a mobile app. In addition to basics such as name, major, and age, MaysMeet will also include a resume, references, and prior relationship experience on each profile. It has also been announced that Business Fellows, PPA, and the other inner-circles of Mays will have access to exclusive events and features.
“Mays is known for its reputation of being home to all of the ‘pretty girls’ on campus. On main campus, everyone jokes about how girls want engineers, but in reality we have the social skills that engineers lack, without sacrificing job outlook,” said Accounting major Charlie Kelly.
Mays expects the website to be well-received, since the majority of students within the college are already using Tinder to the same effect.
