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.

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