YOICO–You’re Only In College Once. I did my best to popularize this phrase at The University of Delaware when YOLO was a big deal. YOICO was a great excuse to get a pizza and watch a movie at 3am instead of studying, and the only downside (obviously there aren’t others…) is that I can’t use it anymore now that I’ve graduated.
College is fun, and having the freedom to manage your own time is great. However, sometimes flexible schedules can make it difficult to meet up with people–especially for meals. If I had LunchBunch in college, I would have used it every day.
Sometimes you only have 5 minutes to eat before class starts or you just want to eat alone, but usually eating with people is more fun. Schedules change every day, but LunchBunch makes it easy to find hungry friends. Instead of texting all of your friends to see who is available, you can check LunchBunch for the friends who–just like you–are ready to eat.
LunchBunch is great for finding people right now, but it is also useful for regular meals. Let’s say you and your roommates always get lunch together on Tuesdays. You can create a Roommate bunch in the app, and when you’re ready to eat, you can invite all of them at the same time.
With LunchBunch, you don’t have to worry about messaging people who aren’t available. Sometimes it’s hard to text people before a meal because they might not respond immediately, they may have already eaten, or they’re otherwise not available. When I don’t get an immediate response to a text message, I wonder how long I should wait before asking someone else or going alone. But with LunchBunch, I can see which friends want to eat now, and it’s super easy for me to suggest a place.
So next time you’re hungry, whether you’re getting out of class, you need a study break, or you simply want to see if anyone is available, check LunchBunch!

And remember, you may only be in college once, but YCALB (You Can Always LunchBunch)!
