Ohio University guys and gals are highly-regarded on Tinder.
Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Friday, Aug. 28, 2015:
Bobcats, it’s Friday. You’ve nearly made it through one week of classes.
As if that weren’t reason enough to be proud this morning, wait ‘til you hear this: Tinder recently released some data about the app that puts both the men and women of Ohio University in the top 20 “most right-swiped” students nationwide.
OU’s men are the 19th-most right-swiped (two spots ahead of Miami) and Bobcat ladies are sitting in the 18th position (two spots behind Miami). OU topped Ohio State in both categories.
Tinder said the data were compiled using the ratio of right swipes received by men and women on each campus, meaning a school that just uses Tinder an inordinate amount wouldn’t necessarily make the list.
Hold your heads high, Bobcat guys and gals. You’re attractive — to each other, at least.
