It's no surprise that friends make your life better.

The folks that support you when things go bad, celebrate with you when they go well, make you laugh, keep you company - they're what life is about.

But for today's college students, leaving the familiar people and places of home is dauntung, especially since they may not be as skilled at face-to-face friendmaking as previous generations.

The solution?  The brainchild of a UMD alumnus and his UMD-alumni staff: an app to help you connect with good old-fashioned friends.

Platonic is still in the beta-testing phase and you can find out more about how it works here.
