Rutgers Parents Are NOT Happy About Snooki's Lecture Appearance At The School

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooSnookiThe SituationJwoww

rutgers parents pissed about snooki appearance

Last week, we learned that Rutgers University paid Jersey Shore's Snooki $2,000 MORE than Nobel/Pulitzer Prize-winner Toni Morrison to appear at the school.

Now, Rutgers is getting some serious backlash from parents for inviting the hard partying, Jersey Shore star to talk at their institution.

Here's what Rutgers parent Nester Delgado had to say about it:

"It's disgusting. Next year, is it going to be J-WOWW or The Situation?"

More from parent Christine Getz:

"I don't think she's a good representation of a role model for my kids."

But why are they so mad, you might ask? Here's some of the advice that Snook gave students during her appearance:

"When you're tan, you feel better about yourself"

"Study hard, but party harder."

And here's what Rutgers University Programming Association's president Ana Castillo had to say about it:

"We're trying to provide different kinds of experiences to students."

Hmm…we could understand why Rutgers parents are upset, but Snooki DID write a book! That's gotta count for something, right?


Do U think Rutgers made a mistake by paying Snooki to appear at their institution?

    Perez - you're like 4 days late on this story. WAKE UP!

    I think whoever chose to spend $32,000 of university funds during a recession for a reality celeb should be fired. None of the Jersey Shore cast are role models and I'd be surprised if any of them went to college. Geez. This society is going down the tubes.

    The Univesity only gave the students what they want. Unfortunately, that is what they wanted to see, snooki probably got more attention than the novel winner which is sad. On a side note, isn't Rutgers the school where that gay kid jumped off the GW bridge last year? just wondering is all

  5. 5

    I think it's great that they're providing different types of experiences for the students. Both are successful women for different reasons. I see no harm in getting the opportunity to see them both speak.

  6. 6

    i doubt she could even read a book — did she even finish high school?

    I love Nicole "Snookie" Polizzi. I think she is awsome. She one of the most honest, sweet hearted sort of famous people out there. She is unabashedly unashamed to be her true self. Because of this she is a good role model. SHe isn't ashamed of herself, she isn't mean or vindictive. Simply put I would want to party with her and have heart to heart. People like that don't come around often.

  8. 8

    yes. it's a disgrace.

  9. 9

    baha thats funny

  10. 10

    Re: pinkywhitehead – she is far from true self.. once a slut always a slut. She provides nothing helpful or useful to society.

  11. 11

    Learn to spell APPEARANCE..You speak of others being dumb BUT YOU CANT SPELL. JESUS.

  12. 12

    Alot of students in college and university party so I'm sure that was their reason for wanting to see her. They were probably hoping she'd get falling down drunk with them. I hope she didn't disappoint them by trying to act scholarly!

  13. 13

    Shame on America for idolizing this slug of a moron.

  14. 14

    Its sad..our world is headed towards Idiocracy! Watch the movie and mourn the future.

  15. 15

    Girl dont even know what a college is. She lives off her parents.

  16. 16

    I would sue for my tuition back. In fact, the only thing worse than her speaking there is the parents NOT suing. That money is for professors, computers and scholarships for the less fortunate, NOT uneducated idiots.

  17. 17

    Yea - she wrote a book in the same way PEREZ wrote a book. With the help of 2nd and 3rd authors and ghost writers. please.

  18. 18

    The current generation is at an all time low.

  19. 19

    Just because a little kid wants chocolate for dinner it doesn't mean you should give it to them. The college made a huge mistake. That girl will be nowhere in a couple of years time.

  20. 20

    Go Snooki ! Rutgers was lucky to get you that cheap.

  21. 21

    What a disgrace this was! I can't believe they paid a Nobel/Pulitzer Prize-winner less then her!

  22. 22

    …did she even go to college? She is in NO WAY inspirational or a good role model. What was Rutgers expecting her to say, "Yeah, my life may look like fun, but it's really a lot better to pay attention in school, study, and get good grades so you can eventually get a good job, live comfortably, and have a relatively normal, happy life"?? I DOUBT that was the take-away message of her speech…

  23. 23

    any university should be ashamed for spending that much amount of money for a REALITY TV personality to make a speech at their school.
    it's disgusting and a serious misuse of school funds.
    think of all the scholarships that could have been made with that money, or improvement to lacking programs.
    there was no point in having Snooki at that school other than entertainment value and if they wanted that they can get it for free on TV.
    as an Ivy League university they should be ashamed of themselves, because I seriously doubt anybody walked out of that lecture having gained something. if anything they probably lost a few IQ points.

  24. 24

    I would be mad too if I found out they paid this orange,little troll $32K to speak.What does she know about anything besides drinking,sleeping around and diseases?

  25. 25

    Re: Red_One,
    I don't like the word "slut" what does it really mean. What number of people must you sleep with to be nominated into sluthood. Is it less than 1 or more than 1. The word slut is subjective, it doesn't really have a definitive definition. It is someones close minded and judgmental idea imposed on someone undeserving. I bet to someone else your number is slutty but you might not consider yourself a slut. Does it matter if she is or isn't? Does her bedroom behavior really matter to the rest of the world? No. Does yours?
    I think she does do a service to girls everywhere. She doesn't apologize for who she is. She has values like true friendship, honesty, forgiveness and she is super funny. The only thing I do worry about with her is drinking. I do think she drinks to much, but at least she admits it.

  26. 26

    I dont blame them! Rutgers is now a JOKE!

  27. 27

    Students in college are old enough to make choices for themselves, like whether or not they want to attend her lecture or not. Why should the parents be getting involved

  28. 28

    As a former Rutgers University student I am embarrassed my school paid money for her to speak. A wiser decision would be to use that towards a scholarship or to have someone speak that is worth listening to. Go RU!

  29. 29

    Re: pinkywhitehead – Telling student to "study hard but party harder" is something a good role model says? Yes college students party but they shouldn't more than they study.
    I'd be PISSED if she came to my school

  30. 30

    so it's not an april's fool joke after all.. LOL dumb americans

  31. 31

    Why is the "whore in a garbage can" worth this much money to talk to college students????

  32. 32

    It was most likely student fee money…students make the choice how the money is spent…NOT the parents…get over it. The administration certainly did NOT make the decision!

  33. 33

    yeah, perez. your right. snooki wrote a book. and it taught us how to be ugly, fat, tan, and just overall idiots like her.

  34. 34

    Re: pinkywhitehead
    wow, i guess your an idiot just like her. lol

  35. 35

    haha i just noticed something. what the heck is up with her face in this picture. she looks black/orange. haha what happened snooki? did you break your mirror from how ugly you are? lol poor girl is hideous.

  36. 36

    Somehow I can't imagine Oxford university inviting the cast of The Only Way is Essex (Britain's answer to Jersey Shore that must be seen to be believed) to give a lecture. Only in America would this happen. That they paid this pointless waste of space $2000 more than a nobel prize winner defies belief.

  37. 37

    thats CRAZZYY i would not be mad at all because if i raised my kids right i would not be worried at all as long as i did a good job as a parent Snooki would not influence them negatively

  38. 38

    its not about the influence its about the stupidity of the college!!! Its not a problem to watch jersy shore and if it gives you entertainment that is fine but for her to make a speech is unbelievable! My freshman year of college we all watched flavor of love… but we knew we were in college and we were there to learn. Our speakers did something for us, our community, and did something possitive (help others) in their life… what kinda shit is this… that school will be over for guest i bet… stupididity is everywhere

  39. 39

    They paid Snooki Trash that much money for WHAT????REALLY???THAT SAYS ALOT ABOUT THIS UNIVERSITY.

  40. 40

    Horrible. I have nothing against anyone from the cast. In fact, I really enjoy watching the show. What really bothers me is the allocation of money on behalf of the university. Yes both women are successful in their own way but Snooki is not even remotely close to the inspiration Morrison is. She is an intellectual, an artist, and extremely influential so to think that a reality star who has attributed nothing substantial to society and only perpetuates ignorance and false hopes of success was considered to be worth more than an author such as Morrison by an academic institution just sickens me. I don't usually comment, let alone go this hard on a blog site but this really pissed me off.

    Ok, now I'm done lol

  41. 41

    whatever i feel better when i'm tan.

  42. 42

    Re: vsminimoose – Ha! Good one!!

    They don't need to be exposed to the same crap they could already see on t.v. I would be mad, too, if I were a parent. Why would you want your daughter to start acting like Snooki. She could do that without a degree, or even a high school diploma!

  43. 43

    Geez $2.00 would have been way overpaying for that fat little ugly orange troll. What can she talk about other than getting falling down drunk and making an ass of herself? They might as well have just flushed that money down the toilet

  44. 44

    That is my school and honestly, it is shameful that they would ask her to speak, let alone pay her that handsomely. Most students are nothing short of fortunate to make that much during their first year after graduating, and she earned that for one night's worth of bullsh*t wisdom.
    But hell, if I could be paid that much looking like the Tropicana Orange with a poof and legs, I'd drink myself to oblivion and stop worrying about my GPA and schooling in general too. Still, my tuition is not worth her vodka and spray tan - SO, I'd like a refund now. Kthanx.

  45. 45

    Re: Crabbey – so true. i am scared for society as a whole. i mean when idiots pay money to see charlie sheen or when a college pays money to have snooki speak then u know we are in trouble.

  46. 46

    Re: phishygrl – Lol, I've seen 'Idiocracy', and you're right. Our world just keeps getting dumber and dumber. If Snooki is looked at as any type of a role model, we're all doomed.

  47. 47

    Re: scotch_pirate – Rutgers is not ivy league

  48. 48

    Re: lollipop145 – well some of those parents could be either be helping their child pay their tuition or paying the entire thing. they dont want their money to be spent on listening to snookie talking about partying and tanning.

  49. 49

    What i find even more disturbing is that the parents are reffering their grown as adult children as "kids" o_0

  50. 50

    Re: pinkywhitehead – is that a joke? she sleeps with random guys whose names she doesnt even remember.. thats called a slut. period. and no, someones bedroom activities dont matter… unless they are broadcasting those activities on national television and are not known for anything but those activities. the fact is snooki is a ditzy midget hoebag who puts more emphasis on tanning and boozing than anything else in life. she is not a role model in any way.. you cant spin it so stop trying you fucking moron.

  51. 51

    I agree! Schools aren't offering as much classes as they use to because they can't afford the teachers but yet they can give her all that money just for an hour speech.. get out of here.. such BS

  52. 52

    Re: Crabbey – Most of them did go to college. As for actually finishing with a degree in anything I can only think of jwoww.

  53. 53

    Re: sunandsand – hahaha so true so true this whitehead person is a fucking idddiioottttttt snookie sucks dick for a living and hasnt been sober since 2008. Get over it you 14 year old loser :)

  54. 54

    HUGE mistake. These parents spend a lot of money on tuition, and it is getting thrown away on trash like Snooki. I would be pissed if my hard earned money went to that bullsh*t.

  55. 55

    Re: lollipop145 – Because the parents are the one that PAY their tuition. I wouldn't want to be paying for a complete moron infected with undiscovered STD's to speak at Rutgers.

  56. 56

    Re: gimlet123 – They say that about every generation.
