U of M Class of 2018 Facebook Group: Same group, but new location!

Many of you have joined the U of M Class of 2018 Facebook group that we set up for your class, but recently we've heard from several new students that they are having trouble joining. In the beginning we set the security level at Secret, which we thought was a good idea, but now we're having issues and Facebook won't let us change the settings back to Closed. :(

So, in order to include all students in your class, we have set up a new group with fewer restrictions, and hopefully, fewer problems! :)
