Bottom line, you need the account to join the corresponding groups in order to make sure you get the info. Also, I am working with the Student's Union and you guessed it, the facebook page is a must!
I would have told them to stuff it where the sun don't shine, though in much cruder vocabulary. I would have then told them they're insane for thinking I'm going to financially support an institution that requires I put my own privacy and computer security at risk, and that I'm going to find another school. If they don't agree to use my email address or cell phone to contact me in case of closing like a normal school then nothing of value will be lost.
Boot to the Head!

TestE is testy today...

Not everyone can afford to take a stance on what is REALLY a small issue. I say small because while you might be forced to create a facebook account, no one says you have to populate it with correct information, or even any information at all.

Let your imagination be your guide. Be the 96 yr old traveling sex toy salesman you always wanted to be

Counter with misdirection. Create a profile as Boxxy's left nipple ring and state your likes as knitting, swing jazz and necrophilia.

Regardless, that sort of information should be available on the university's webpage. They can dual-post it on Facebook if they want, but the students shouldn't be required to go to a site that's sole purpose is to obtain and track your information to sell it.
