Connect with Classmates

Demic is a mobile app a team of UW-Madison students created to help connect UW-Madison students with their classmates.

How it works:

  1. Choose what you’re looking for
    1. Friends, study buddies, classmates on-call
  2. Choose which attributes you want to have in common, like academic year, major, availability, interests, and more
  3. Decide whether each classmate is someone you’d like to connect with or choose to skip them for now

You’ll be matched with a classmate only if you both indicate interest in connecting, so you can message them with confidence!
