Oodle Adds 240 New Schools to Its College Network

SAN MATEO, CA--(Collegiate Presswire - August 16, 2006) - As the summer winds down and the back to school rush kicks in, thousands more students will now have access to Oodle to find and furnish a great apartment, snag that a perfect resume-building internship, or get great deal on a used car, bike or their text books.

Oodle, the leading search engine for local classifieds, announced today the addition of more than 240 new schools to its campus network (http://www.oodle.com/college), including Princeton, UNC and UCSB. Oodle now provides 426 college and university communities with a service specifically tailored to college students.

In addition, Oodle also announced added functionality in its apartments and tickets categories.

Oodle has taken the hunt out of apartment hunting by bringing more than two million apartment listings from thousands of websites to one convenient site. Oodle's free apartment finder further simplifies the search by sending students email updates the minute apartment listings that fit their criteria are published.

In the tickets category, Oodle recently launched a new event calendar that lists all last-minute tickets available for the upcoming weekend. On a Thursday night, students can now browse available sports, concerts and other local event tickets to plan a memorable weekend.

"I search for stuff online all the time, and the new functionality on Oodle makes it even easier to quickly find what I want," said Matt Dearborn, a senior at Duke University. "With Oodle, I recently found a pair of sold-out tickets to the Chris Brown concert the first weekend I get back to school. It's great!"
