Facebook Deleted the #UVA23 Class Facebook Group, So Here's a New One

Facebook decided a bunch of college class groups needed to be deleted, so they got rid of the UVA Class of 2023 along with some others over the weekend. The current students who volunteered to answer questions in the group told me that the incoming students were simply introducing themselves, so they couldn't figure out how they could possibly have run afoul of Facebook's community standards.

Anyway, the students just created a new UVA Class of 2023 group and shared the link with me. Here's hoping this one doesn't have any issues.

As a reminder, this group is for students only. I'm not even in there. A few current UVA students volunteered to answer questions when needed. When the incoming class elects their Class Council, the admin roles will be handed over to the officers.
