Campus Essentials is a unique twist that can be thought of as a combination of Craigslist and Facebook. It is a meeting place for students and requires a .edu email address to be accepted into the platform. Students can post books, furniture, clothing, events, travel, and much more to be shared with other students within their circles. Each student is assigned to circles based on where they are attending college.
Campus Essentials also has a business aspect to it that allows advertisers to post advertisements directly to students within the platform. The business side payment processing is handled automatically through Stripe.
Custom crons were created to handle all the listing expirations, automatic emails to students and businesses, and more.
