Students get bored. Students have smartphones. Students use their smartphones when they are bored. Students populate the Foursquareverse with spots for most of the classrooms (and teachers). Some students remember that the internet is public and stick to funny but not disrespectful names. Some students do not. (Glad foursquare lets you change the names of spots.)

Can you guess which one I'm the mayor of?

The tips left in some of the spots can be funny sometimes as well. Our foursquare spots get a fair amount of traffic. People check in when they are here for alumni events, conferences, or sports. Most of the photos added to Nolan spots were not added by visiting adults.

It might be a fun way to track attendance if GPS systems in phones were a little more precise....
