Since this is just an experimental feature, though, there are no guarantees that it will ever be available to the general public.

Facebook is apparently hoping to go back to its roots as a service that connects college students with each other. App researcher Jane Manchun Wong has unearthed an experimental feature called “Campus,” which can be exclusively accessed by college students, when she took apart the social network’s application.

You will need a .edu email address to access Campus, and once you’re in, you can fill out a profile with your graduation year, major, minor and dorm if you want to find your friends on it.

As you probably may know, the social network started as a platform to connect Harvard students only before expanding to welcome students from other universities and educational institutions.

Today, Facebook has 3 billion monthly active users around the world. It is no longer the same service the creator and president of the company Mark Zuckerberg and his fellow Harvard students built some years ago, but Campus feels like a throwback to those days.

In Wong’s screenshot, you will see that Campus spaces will have their own Groups, Events and other features. That way, they can only be accessed by users who have the .edu credentials needed to enter the space.
