CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -

A University of Virginia graduate has created a brand new app to help the UVA community.

The app is called ‘MeeteR’ and it can be used on a phone or computer.

It helps students, faculty, and the UVA community see what events are happening nearby. 

Founder Steven Le says coming in as a transfer student to UVA is what inspired him to make it.

"One of the problems I had was fitting in, if I wasn't a part of these list serves or Facebook groups, I wasn't really able to find out about these awesome student, university funded events …I would always be hitting myself over the head like, 'why am I just finding about this after the fact?'" and I hated that and wanted to change it,” said Le. 

The app is free for anyone to use, as long as you have a Virginia.edu email address.
