U-Swap is an online marketplace specifically for college students within their campus. Students can buy, sell, or barter for items like dorm furniture, textbooks, and even intangible goods like tutoring hours. If a student cannot find the item that they're looking for, the website connects to the eBay website and offers relevant links for the student based on their search.

"My favorite part about this project was programming the eBay API into our code, which takes user input and returns search results based on the input. It was difficult, but it was fun to test our coding skills with the challenge."
