On-campus matchmaking!

india Updated: Oct 25, 2006 15:14 IST

Four college students in China have raised eyebrows by setting up a matchmaking agency to help their peers find true love.

The agency, opened by Xu Jiaojiao and three other third-year students from Nanjing Agricultural University in east China, aims to help college students "meet, get to know each other and fall in love", and also help them express their feelings and break up in a peaceful way.

Xu Jiaojiao said they provide the matchmaking service free.

"We want to learn and develop by organising activities and also create more opportunities for college students to get to know each other," Xu said.

Sun Xiaolei, a mechanical and electrical engineering major at Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, said the agency benefits college students, especially engineering majors like him whose class has few girls.

Jin Taijun, dean of the School of Public Administration at Nanjing University of Technology, said there was nothing abnormal about college students running a matchmaking organisation.
