    Boston College made headlines when professor Kerry Cronin offered students extra credit for asking another student on a date. Cronin felt dating was a “lost social script” and was alarmed that students didn’t know how to actually date. Instead, she noticed college students just hung-out together. Some of Griffin’s parameters included asking someone out in person and couldn’t involve alcohol, kissing or sex.Some students asked for advice on how to actually ask someone out on a real date. But is it really necessary to date the old-fashioned way? In the world of Tinder, college students can lean on the hookup app to help break down barriers and launch relationships. Gone are the days when you need to strike up a conversation with someone before asking them out. But is it worth it?
