In order to pay off a $50,000 student loan, a 2011 graduate of Florida State University’s School of Theater is set to sell her diploma and “college experience” on eBay.
Frustrated Stephanie Ritter, recently posted a sarcastic, yet very real eBay listing which described her diploma as being in “Mint condition” and “Never been used to get a job.”
“I thought this piece of paper has so much worth to so many people, but for a theatre major, it couldn’t mean less,” she said. “I’m doing the exact same things and probably getting paid the exact same amount as people that dropped out halfway through freshman year, except I’m still $40,000 in debt and they’re, well, not,” Ritter added.
Ritter’s sarcasm grew in the item description on the website, as she wrote “Why waste four years of your life going to a state school for a piece of paper when you can just buy mine?”
