Is Foursquare checking in on your college campus?

Yesterday, Foursquare, the service where people check into their locations using their mobile devices, introduced Foursquare for Universities.

Students will still be able to create and check into places, but now they can earn college badges.

With other location based social services like Yelp, Gowalla and more recently Facebook Places, the board is wondering if this would make a difference in the way students interact now that universities are charged with making their own pages, just like they are with Facebook.

Looks like this could be a photo finish, but we just have to wait and see.
