Many colleges across the country are beefing up for their big graduation ceremonies, and that can cost a pretty penny.
Who did Rutgers University, a New Jersey-based university, choose to deliver the commencement speech? It’s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi from MTV’s Jersey Shore, of course. Bless her heart, but she needs some school. Rutgers paid her $32,000 to appear at the undergraduate commencement. That’s $2,000 more than Nobel Prize winning novelist Toni Morrison received who will also deliver the commencement speech at Rutgers in May. Can you believe it?
Snooki’s advice to the graduates set to appear before the class of 2011: “Study hard, party harder.” Oh no!
