    Past, present and future college students are impacting their world by uniting internationally via the internet


    Social media is a “buzz” word and for many seems overused in various circles but for some this term is a welcomed guest. For those that are past, present and future college students they are discovering by the thousands -- a fresh social networking website.


    The magnetic appeal is that Fallterms.com has features like campus chat; live streaming with classmates, classified ads, college news, student discussions, and a plethora of other really cool ‘bells and whistles’ and most of all is exclusively for past, present and future college students!


    Current CEO and founder of Fallterms, Jan Pluto Jr. took an interest in studying computers and business at Penn State University, after his U.S. Air Force service.


    As a college student Jan, observed the lack of networking, and college focused websites and apps to help the college students, thus leading to the creation of Fallterms.


    Here is what Mr. Pluto Jr. told us.


    “As a junior at Penn State University, I wanted a way for college students to meet, network, and find love. This sparked the idea for a website called college dates. Shortly after the college dates website geared toward college dating was in fully in motion.


    I realized there was a big demand for tools to help students in their college careers and for networking with other college students.


    From this realization, a multi-platform networking website was created, FallTerms.com. The goal is to have features and tools every college student needs, to help them through their, past, present, and future college careers.


    Our biggest challenge is adapting to the ever changing world of education and technology. As everyone knows each year there are brand new students entering the college world that brings a fresh variety of needs and wants.


    So trying to adapt our website and apps, to the constant change is a challenge but also fun at the same time. We learn and educate ourselves on new things, and expand our ideas to a new world of students.


    The thousands and thousands of past, present and future college students that are active members of fall terms feel this social media platform separates itself from other networking websites because of the wide variety offered them and they are using this website to impact their world.


    There are many networking websites out there today, but most focus on just the communication between the people you already know. Fall Terms focuses on expanding your network and meeting new people.


    We also bring new tools and features not seen on current networking sites, features like chat rooms, news, blogs, classified ads, and much more.


    Our goal is to evolve into being the number one past, present and future college student focused networking website on the web, and open up a new world to past, present, and future college students.


    We want to be there every step of the way, and help you throughout your college journey. So what are you waiting for? Your interactive college life starts now!” said, Jan Pluto Jr. current CEO/Founder of Fallterms.com
