When I first got Patio I had no clue what it was. I expected it to be like GroupMe but it is so different. I downloaded this app for college and it is insanely convenient. I used to have to send 20 different links to people but on Patio you can click “Discover Groups” and it shows all of the chats made in that group/school. You can be in multiple chats also! You can also find people with similar interests and filter through people. You can have your zodiac sign, your favorite music, the major or career field you’re interested in, hobbies, anything you can imagine. On each persons account you can click their page see their picture, their bio, their major, the year they are graduating, their pronouns, and their socials. There is also a feature to message people individually. You can create small groups and chat with them in the DMs tab. I love this app so much because it’s convenient. It is so easy. Everything is on one platform. Honestly I don’t think I can use anything else. I will recommend Patio to everyone and use it for everything. It’s so simple and easy. Thank you so much for making this app!!! I love Patio!!!!

Best app to get to know other college students

It’s hard to meet/interact with other students on social platforms like Snapchat/Instagram (group chat limit, etc.), and especially in a time like this. Patio is the perfect place to talk to other students. At first, I had a little trouble navigating because there were so many features but after a little, it was much easier. It’s easy to make friends through the common interests filter and then making private group chats with them. I absolutely love Patio and recommend it to anyone looking to make more friends in their college class. If Patio isn’t available for the school you’re attending, you should definitely reach out to the 2025 Instagram and ask them to become an ambassador!!!

Best school communications app!!

We are using it for a class of 2025 college to connect with other classmates and it is so helpful! It is so easy to use and navigate through the app. The app is so easy to pickup and get the hang of. Also, it allows you to create different groups and be in any/all groups that relate to your interests! It is so much better than all other communication apps(GroupMe, Snapchat, etc.) because it is all in one spot, there is no maximum amount of people in a group, and you can join individual groups that interest you instead of just being in one big group that may talk about things that don’t relate to you. I highly recommend this app, by far the best communications app for school!! Love this app!
