Steven Liss '10, the creator of theReunions Advent Calendar website, has launched a new mobile site,MyTigerPack, to help attendees coordinate and mass-communicate with friends during the three days of Reunions.
The idea of creating a Reunions-related website started with the Reunions Advent Calendar last year, because Liss said he realized he found Reunions even more exciting than Christmas. That site received 5,000 views on the first day, and because of the positive reaction to the site, Liss decided that he would create another website for this year.
Liss first publicized the website by posting it on his Facebook. “The Princeton network is really passionate about Reunions. I knew it would take off,” Liss stated. The site has been more popular among the younger classes so far. The oldest member to sign up is from the Class of 1978 and the youngest is from the Class of 2016.
Julia Blount ’12, Liss’ friend, points to his enthusiasm for Princeton as a reason for creating Reunions websites. Blount, who has tried the MyTigerPack website, noted that Liss is a very sociable person. “He loves Princeton and his experience there,” Blount said. “It all comes together to create his Reunions enthusiasm."
Indeed, Liss has plans to keep the MyTigerPack website going for more Reunions to come. According to him, the current version of MyTigerPack is “the first iteration.”
For Liss, the excitement in creating these Reunions websites comes from the thought of bringing the Princeton community together.“I really like when I can share ideas through a lot of people,” Liss said. “If I can create something that brings people together, then I’m enjoying it.”
