Wector was conceptualized and created by two undergraduate students at Cornell - Palash Agarwal and Karun Singh.
How did this start?
While looking for hackathons to attend in the school year, we were frustrated by the number of times we had to check how far other universities are from Cornell. Hence, we came up with the idea of Wector: a browser extension that would automate this process for us, and condense five tedious steps into one.
