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:
- Choose what you’re looking for
- Friends, study buddies, classmates on-call
- Choose which attributes you want to have in common, like academic year, major, availability, interests, and more
- 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!
