Students at colleges across the country are heading back to class today. To celebrate, foursquare has added a new badge to their college badge series: Back to School.
The badge can be unlocked by checking in to any college campus or building. The unlock text reads:
Stacks on stacks on stacks! Time to get your learning on. But before you lock yourself up in ye olde library, use foursquare to explore your campus. Find a sneaky study spot, or the best cup of coffee (fuel!) – then leave a tip to pay it forward. Boom!
As with a lot of core badges, the unlock text serves to give users hints about how to use foursquare on campus. Colleges are an ideal spot for foursquare since everything is typically within easy walking distance and finding friends and current hot spots are made simpler by using the app.
UPDATE (October 30): This badge appears to have gone inactive on October 27.
