Rutgers students want Springsteen, not Snooki
Some students at New Jersey’s largest university think Bruce Springsteen is their salvation, according to the Associated Press.
They have started a Facebook campaign called “Let’s Bring the Boss to Rutgers!” to counteract fallout from a recent appearance by Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi.
The Rutgers University Programming Association paid the “Jersey Shore” reality-TV star $32,000 to answer questions. That’s $2,000 more than the university will pay Nobel Prize-winning novelist Toni Morrison to deliver the commencement address.
