Tango is an academic network that connects students to classmates from the start during class registration. On Tango, you can pick your current classes or future classes you’re interested in and see potential classmates and teammates also considering similar classes. This lowers a lot of market inefficiencies and barriers to catch missed connections to possible study groups or project teammates. Furthermore, academic planning at MIT can often be daunting and filled with second-guessing. Tango helps students find upperclassmen who’ve been through similar situations. Each course page has an open Q/A forum where students can find answers to class-related questions and critical advices from veterans. Your social network shouldn’t simply be defined by classes at MIT but neither should they be limited by the same classes. Our platform also helps friends plan regular meet-ups like lunch or study-sessions by mapping out their class locations on campus throughout the week, allowing them to figure out a common meeting place.
