what is pear ?
a delicious lunch-pairing web app
for when you want to get to know someone new
for when you're a freshman eager to meet new faces
for when you're an upperclassman who wants to feel like a freshman again

what do yalies think of pear ?
is it yalies or yalers ?
yalies are hella cool. i'm going to use this to meet a bunch of new people, or just make lunches interesting again
this is a really cool concept. personally, i would have called this thing 'kiwi,' or 'passionfruit,' or 'kumquat'
who are you?
i'm sahil gupta, sy '17, a yalie who loves people, food, and surprise. credit also goes to jenny allen, tc '16, who worked with me to conceptualize and code the first version of the app this summer
does pear work on my phone?
pear is purely a website so it works on your iphone, android, laptop, ...
is pear just for undergrads?
yes for now. if you're a super-senior or the like, shoot me an email to join
why did you make the site?
however small the yale bubble, students don't get to know a lot of their fellow yalies. by encouraging chance encounters, i hope to help yalies connect
how do you pair students?
with a depth-first search algorithm that matches students who are free at a common time and place, all while maximizing the total number of matches
