Tinder gave one college student a scholarship after she was disciplined by her sorority for using the dating app.
Shannon Workman, a junior at the University of Nebraska Omaha, left her sorority Chi Omega after she was accused of violating its “human dignity” standard for wearing her sorority T-shirt in her Tinder profile pic.
Workman concluded that Chi Omega didn’t want its members associated with the service. The sorority began the process to revoke Workman’s membership, but the college junior quit before her expulsion was finalized. She told BuzzFeed that Tinder is not limited to hookups, and that “great things” can happen through the app.
Tinder CEO Sean Rad told BuzzFeed that the company admires Workman’s values and that many women like her represent a huge demographic of those using the dating app. The company personally called Workman to offer her a scholarship covering all expenses for her last year of college. They also offered her an internship at their headquarters in California.
