This past week, the Fordham student body did something that was at once surprisingly inspiring, slightly pathetic, and painfully thirsty. After reaching the finals of a Tinder “swipe-off” to win a concert with Juice WRLD and Charlie XCX, we did the impossible and actually won something.
As many of you may know, Fordham University just won TinderU’s #SwipeOff contest. This contest, in many ways inspired by the March Madness tournament, pits universities across the country against each other to see which one has the highest ratio of “swipe rights”. The winner of the competition gets a free concert, with the performer(s) this year being popular rapper Juice WRLD and British artist Charli XCX.
Apparently, Tinder is working with Change.Org and Alex Ohanian, the executive chairman and co-founder of Reddit as well as the husband of Serena Williams, to petition Unicode for interracial couples to be represented in emojis.
