Students are "swiping right" on Tinder to win a Cardi B concert

Don’t be surprised when you see students swiping away at their phones this week. They are swiping right—a “yes” signal—on the dating app Tinder in order to win a concert featuring stripper-turned-rapper Cardi B. On March 30th, Tinder started the #SwipeOff challenge, in which students from the 64 selected colleges competed with each other to swipe right on the most people. The University is now in the “Finals” round, competing against eight other colleges in order to enter the Championship round. Ans Nawaz ‘21 heard about the contest online and, after verifying that it was legitimate, sent promotional materials to friends, residential college Listservs, Facebook groups, and GroupMes, encouraging students to “swipe right for Cardi B.” Video by Sarah W.
