Despite UCSD singles’ best efforts, UC San Diego will not be hosting a Cardi B concert in late April, having been out-swiped in Tinder’s #SwipeOff challenge by Northeastern University and the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.
The challenge began on March 27. It was announced on April 9 that UCSD had made it through four rounds to make the top eight.

“The winner is getting the concert with me, ” Cardi B said in Tinder’s finalist announcement while eating an unidentified item of takeout food. “Muahahaha.”
Everyone said D1 would unite UCSD and give us school spirit but let’s be real this Cardi B competition on tinder has united UCSD like nothing else could

The high temperature in Boston or wherever University of Massachusetts-Amherst is will be 35°F this Sunday, so the winning school will be sure to enjoy their concert.
