‘Snooki’ and Toni Morrison
This. Is. Sad. Try and imagine what kind of advice Snooki might impart to our nations graduates. Then, consider that she is being paid $32,000 – two grand more than Pulitzer Prize winning author Toni Morrison – to speak to them.
According to NJ.com, The Rutgers University Programming Association paid Jersey Shore‘s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi $32,000 Thursday to speak to students in a 52,000-seat football stadium in May. Morrison was booked by the university itself, while Snooki’s booking was made by the student run committee. The money comes from the students’ mandatory activities fee. Way to go, kids.
