New Social Networking Site, At The Pool, Launches at UCSD

At The Pool is a start-up social networking site that matches users with local users who share the same interests.  ATP is launching at UCSD this fall ( with invite code “UCSD”). ATP has already launched at a number of college campuses across the country, including UC Berkeley and UC Davis.

At The Pool at UCSD is a UCSD-specific “pool” that undergrads, grad students, alumni, professors, and other faculty can join and use to meet other people on campus who share the same interests – a great tool for both social and academic/career purposes. Imagine being a junior seeking experience in Big Four Accounting and being matched with a senior who had just finished a summer internship at PwC!

At The Pool is an ongoing tool that provides one match per 24 hours, and makes the networking process a lot easier.  Join today!
