DateMySchool is an online dating platform targeted toward university students and alumni. It requires a university email address, and claims that it permits only verified students and alumni to join. It allows users to filter by schools, departments, individuals and other groups from accessing their profiles - subject to the same security policy based on university email addresses. The site does not index profiles on Google. Site registration is free, but members are prompted to sign up for a subscription if they visit their inbox. DateMySchool was co-founded by Columbia University M.B.A. students, Balazs Alexa and Jean Meyer, on November 8, 2010 after a woman in the School of Social Work complained that there were too few men in her department.
