Princeton students travel the world over the summer, dropping in everywhere from Bangalore to Budapest. Now, thanks to a new website, they’ll be able to find one another when they get there.
Four undergraduates created Pton.in, where students can click on a spot on the site’s map and find fellow students who will be there, the dates of their visit, and links to send them a message. The free site, restricted to Princeton students, had about 400 members by the end of May.
Jason Adleberg ’14, who created the site with three friends, saw the need last summer, when he bumped into two Princeton students on the street in Tanzania. “I instantly had people to hang out with in this foreign place where I didn’t know anybody or speak the language,” he said.
