I know most are students here, and @Dean_J probably does not have time to involve herself in accepted/current student matters. There is a major issue with the UVA Parent Network on FB.
The moderator has not been a UVA parent for over a decade, and he sends inappropriate/offensive PMs to members, ranging from chastising parents for “violating” nonsensical/authoritarian page policies to muting people for “asking the wrong type of question.” Someone asked if their incoming first year needed a vacuum, and he muted her for two weeks “until she could explain what she did wrong.” He screens entrance to the site and has sent misogynistic messages to women regarding profile pictures (which “must remain full headshots”, despite special requests from domestic violence victims to allow alternate photos).
This is NOT a good look or feel for The University, and certainly is not a welcoming first impression. I don’t believe UVA is aware of what’s happening. Of course, a simple, personal solution is to not join the page. But it is touted as the Facebook site for new UVA parents and students who are desperate for info, and it’s a total turnoff. Such a contrast to the incredibly welcoming sites of comparable, national universities and others in the ACC and across VA.
