Students, confessions and comedy. This is what you can look forward to when visiting Csusb Student Confessions Facebook page.
As stated in last week’s issue by Angelice Romero, “Reading the confessions has become a new past time for mine and for other students as well, not to mention providing a chuckle or two.”
The Facebook page was created by an anonymous student who was one day viewing the UC Davis confessions page and realized how addicting it was to read all the posts students were uploading online.
Once the creator realized that CSUSB had nothing compared to the confessions page he/she decided to create one for student to voice their opinions, ask for advice, pass the time and enjoy entertaining and outrageous topics and comments.
According to the anonymous creator, Confessions has topics ranging all across the social spectrum.
“We have several common topics which are; people looking for relationship advice (which includes a lot of sex!), people with feelings of sadness and loneliness and people just looking for help on anything relating to school, like where to go if they need help with a class […] etc,” stated the creator.
The creator also stated that, “[People are also] just looking for friends at school, and we do have stories of people becoming friends by meeting on this page. We also have a lot of secret admirers that post on this page, often times we have many confessions about who someone thinks is so beautiful and so handsome, keep an eye out because someone may just be crushing on you!”
When asked about the page students had a broad range of comments.
“I really like this page, and it makes you feel part of something bigger […] a little community within a community. I have made a few friends on here that are really cool, and I love having the opportunity to give my fellow students advice, to share thoughts or even just to laugh about something together. I am a senior and I am sad we didn’t have something like this since I was a freshman. But it is definitely a lot of fun,” said student Liz Shields.
While other students which remain anonymous believe, “it is a waste of time and provides no quality service to students.”
Confessions is available for all students to view, read and post comments or confessions.
Confessions that are submitted to the page are censored of names, e-mails, twitters or anything that is personal to the student confessing.
Since the page is based on student submissions and not organizations, names of sororities and fraternities are also omitted although they are welcome to post information on the wall.
“Overall this page is so fun to run because I get to be the messenger of anonymous persons that relay their feelings about how they feel about CSUSB and what it has to offer,” confessed the creator.
With those words, any students who want to confess a love, an issue, want a friend, have something to say or just want to pass the time and avoid studying are welcomed to visit Csusb Student Confessions.
