Still Out of the Loop, but Not for Long

Loop, an app created by Haverford students to replace Havertivity for campus news and communications, has not yet been released to the student body, despite originally having been aimed at a launch early this year. According to Ian Andolsek ‘17, who is involved in Loop, the first version of the app is “ready to go.” Andolsek said that student government has access to Loop, and club leaders will be introduced to it. When it is released to the entire student body, students will have access to Loop online, as well as on their phones.
