The 411: With more than 1 million registered users and open to 2,400 accredited colleges and universities in the U.S., DateMySchool is the leading dating site for students.

From going to class to taking exams to attending campus events, the life of a college student is a busy one indeed, and that life is mostly filled with people who are studying the same subject.

Who’s got the time to actually find someone for dating and relationships? That’s where DateMySchool comes in.

Launched in 2010, DateMySchool makes meeting, socializing and networking with other academics easy and convenient, and a company spokesperson shared with us how they do it.

The Top 3 Advantages of Using DateMySchool

There are many reasons why DateMySchool stands out from other dating sites, but they’ve set the bar high when it comes to privacy, anonymity and exclusivity.

1. Privacy

Only students and alumni from accredited universities or colleges are allowed to sign up for DateMySchool.

Students can join if they’ve confirmed that they have a .edu email address, while alumni can join if DateMySchool’s external database verifies the college they attended. Once their profile is live, members cannot create another account with that same email address or school, eliminating the chance for low-quality people to game the system with multiple profiles.

DateMySchool’s eye for privacy also comes with the best in safety, which includes a 24-hour security team and advanced technology that monitors user profile pictures to make sure they’re the real deal.

“We go above and beyond to make our users feel secure,” the spokesperson said.

DateMySchool verifies each student and alumni via .edu emails and a database of colleges.

2. Anonymity

Unlike other dating sites or social networking sites like Facebook, which put your information out there for the world to see, DateMySchool is not “indexed in search engine results and the only people who can find you are the ones you specify.”

3. Exclusivity

Speaking of specifying what you’re looking for, DateMySchool also offers users the ability to filter their matches by their school, surrounding colleges and universities, academic department, religion, race, age and more.

Here, you won’t find matching algorithms or extensive surveys that falsely guarantee 100 percent compatibility.

“Students want to meet other students who share the same academic interests, experiences and goals. Just because somebody else likes sushi or likes comedy movies, for example, that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re going to be compatible,” he said.

Today the U.S., Tomorrow the World

Through new search filters, sleeker designs, faster speeds and more, the team behind DateMySchool will continue working to improve the site and user experience, including expanding to countries outside of the U.S.

“We’re doing our best, but we want to expand carefully. We want to do a good job just like we’ve done in the United States,” the spokesperson said. “As time goes on, DateMySchool is going to be the recognized platform to use if you’re interested in connecting with others online and you’re an academic.”

Today, the U.S. Tomorrow, the world

“We are responsible for thousands of connections among college students and alumni across the United States every day,” a company spokesperson said.

But beyond that, he said DateMySchool’s proudest accomplishment is that the hardworking team has been able to create a one-of-a-kind product that has been helpful to students and alumni at thousands of academic institutions across the U.S.

“Some users have reported getting their first date in as little as 30 minutes after logging on for the first time. We have also had several marriages result, one of which is discussed in our CNN article,” he said. “Regardless of if someone finds their spouse through our service or simply finds a new friend on a neighboring campus, we are proud that we were able to bring those people happiness and enhance their academic experience.”
