Meet other college students and interns over the holidays
Campus community shouldn’t end at term time. We built Playbook so you can hang out with other students, interns, and travelers wherever you are this year. Used in 126 countries and every major city, Playbook was started to connect the Ivy League and now connects students from 373 universities around the world. Through our community, we hope you can meet the other college students around, connect with others, and have an amazing time abroad.
"I never once had to pay for a hostel, and instead was fortunate enough to meet so many new people around the globe I probably would not even have run into on campus. And, believe me, there really is an odd and certain charm to sleeping on a makeshift bed on an already cramped floor, and the friendships you find on such nights are truly unparalleled."
"Because of Playbook, I was never truly alone, even though I was traveling by myself. In almost every city I visited, I met up with other students who accompanied me to museums, offered me a place to stay, or joined me for a meal. Summer Playbook helped me make friends from all over the world, but most importantly, it enabled me to feel safe in foreign countries and empowered me to fulfill my dream of traveling across Europe!"
"Without a doubt, Playbook gave me the chance to find a best friend for life, and I am so thankful that I was able to make someone else feel like they belonged and were welcome in a new city hundreds of miles from home."
"Through Playbook, I made one of my best friends at Penn; and that summer as I enthusiastically acted as his tour guide across Trinidad and Tobago, I also rediscovered the beauty and uniqueness of my homeland in ways I had never seen it before, because I was showing it to someone else!"
"I met three friends from Playbook and they organized a trip to Jaipur for the three of us, which was a ton of fun! It was really nice to have a network of students my age to get me through the summer in a foreign country alone for the first time."
* Our Mission
The best moments in life don't happen on a screen. In fact, what we've built is meant to get you off a screen and to encourage the types of friendship you’ll remember—the human ones. In a world filled with apps to whom attention and screen time equals revenue, we may seem a little crazy but we're doing the opposite -- building technology that gets you off it. We hope you can use Playbook to find adventures wherever you are on the planet. We think connecting people from all backgrounds makes a more fun, peaceful, and colorful world, and we hope you can use Playbook to make experiences you'll remember for life.
