Coming to an entirely new country can be really tough for international students. Many times these students know little to nothing about their new home. This can make the first few months very frustrating and in many cases may even affect the student’s academic performance.
The Inter- Connect app is an application that is aimed at helping international students adjust quickly to their new environment. Through the app they can connect with other people from their own country, find their native foods and several other things. The way the app works is quite simple. The user downloads the app to their phone or Ipad.
Next the user has to sign in using either google or Facebook. After signing in, the user now needs to put in some vital information. The most important information being the “nationality.” The app now generates a list of other users from the same country that are registered on the app who the user can now connect with. The user can also search for other things like grocery stores, places of worship, and restaurants around the Syracuse area. In the image below, the user is Tolu, the same Nigerian student from our pixar story.
