Princeton students launch campaign against JuicyCampus

Princeton "Own what you think" campaign poster

Earlier this month, Princeton University joined the bandwagon of American institutions protesting the controversial JuicyCampus, a website where students at selected institutions can make anonymous but potentially libelous and hateful comments. Princeton students, with the support of the administration, also launched an innovative “Own What You Think” campaign, which started as an online protest against JuicyCampus and denounces anonymity as cowardice. The petition asks students to rise above character assassination and gossip culture. There are over 1,000 signatures on the petition, and the campaign has spread to the campus with multimedia displays, posters and t-shirts. Other schools have expressed interest in developing similar campaigns on their campuses. Inside Higher Ed
