Snooki is packing, she was paid $32K to speak at Rutger’s University where students got to hear about Jersey Shore, Fight pumping and living “GTL”. The students may want to ditch their studies and head to the nearest reality show audition! Is Snooki the right person to have speak at a college…I have to admit have sat in on the “lecture” if I had the chance!!!
According to People,
The Jersey Shore star headlined an event Thursday called “Inside the Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi Studio” at the school in Piscataway, N.J., where 1,000 students heard her talk about fist pumping, her signature hair pouf and the “GTL” lifestyle she lives out on reality TV, the university confirms to PEOPLE. She earned a whopping $32,000.
Her fee was $2,000 more than what the university will pay Nobel prize-winning author of Beloved Toni Morrison, who is booked to speak in a 52,000-seat football stadium at commencement in May.
“Such a waste of my money,” freshman Dan Oliveto, 18, told the New Jersey Star-Ledger. “If I want to listen to someone talk, they should have something intelligent to say.”
(Snooki’s advice for Rutgers students: “Study hard, but party harder.”)
Others, like pre-med major Abdel-Raouf, 18, found the fee reasonable. “Honestly, I thought they would have paid her more,” he said.
While Snooki’s appearance was arranged by the student-run Rutgers University Programming Association, which uses mandatory student activity fees included in tuition, Morrison was booked by university officials.
