In a recent announcement, FLIP has posted that they will be putting the Class Confessions page on hiatus. CUCC, originally launched in March 2015, was meant to “illuminates students’ experiences and struggles within socioeconomic diversity.” The page’s stories helped bring numerous socioeconomic struggles to light for the Columbia community and generated large amounts of media attention.
FLIP’s official comment on the topic can be found below.
Hi everyone. Effective immediately, Columbia University Class Confessions will go on hiatus for the temporary time being. All confessions have been posted as of today. Please feel free to redirect concerns and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The founder of the page disaffiliated from FLIP and removed the admin privileges that the members of FLIP’s e-board originally had.
She is suspending the class confessions page because she doesn’t want to be affiliated with FLIP.
FLIP wants to keep the page.
No word on whether or not either party will start up a new page.
We will update this story with more details as they come.
