JuicyCampus now defunct

February 5, 2009

JuicyCampus, a controversial college gossip website, shut down yesterday, with the reason being the economic downturn, according to the site's founder. Having been investigated by the Connecticut and New Jersey attorneys general, JuicyCampus was heavily criticized for encouraging students to make malicious comments, and a number of campaigns from the higher education community were launched against the site.
