When I read this article I didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry. Yup, Snooki's time is apparently worth more than Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison's (author of Beloved – amongst other novels). Snooki is a reality TV star from the famous (or infamous) Jersey Shore series. You may be asking what Snooki has over Toni Morrison. Well….beyond pop culture appeal I would say not much. Hey, I’m all for entertainment and such, but I don’t hold a lot of respect for a university that pays a reality star more to speak than a famed author. Suffice to say, if I ever have children going to college someday….Rutgers University will not be my first option!
