I found this article at CNN.com, by Jason Kessler. Can you believe this?
“A recent college graduate is suing her alma mater for $72,000 – the full cost of her tuition and then some – because she cannot find a job.
Trina Thompson, 27, of the Bronx, graduated from New York’s Monroe College in April with a bachelor of business administration degree in information technology.
On July 24 she filed suit against the college in Bronx Supreme Court, alleging that Monroe’s “Office of Career Advancement did not help me with a full-time job placement. I am also suing them because of the stress I have been going through.”
In her complaint, Thompson says she seeks $70,000 in reimbursement for her tuition, and $2,000 to compensate for the stress of her three-month job search.
The college responded that it offers job-search support to all its students.”
I wonder if this will give other jobless, college grads similar ideas. Isn’t the purpose of college to teach you skills and give you an upper hand at getting a job, not actually guarantee you one? I have a feeling Trina won’t get too far with this.
