Stephanie Ritter is all of us.
The LA-based personal assistant became so frustrated with her job prospects after graduation, she has decided to sell her diploma and “college experience” on eBay. The underemployed college graduate’s belongings can be yours for $50,000.
Ritter was cleaning her room when she came across her Florida State University diploma. She graduated college in 2011, but has had trouble finding major-related work after graduation. And she’s not alone: a recent study showed that only 27% of college graduates manage to find jobs that are related to their major.
In addition to her “mint condition” diploma, Ritter is also selling the full Florida State experience. According to her description on eBay, it includes:
“A TOUR of Florida State University including everywhere you would have gone/eaten/partied in your four years at FSU. (Possibly includes but not limited to: Suwanee Hall and a possible Ms. Killings sighting, Jimmy Johns, Mr. Roboto, dinner at Cool Beanz, burgers & beers at Monks, drinks at Poor Pauls)
Access to all of my college memories/Facebook albums for 6 months! (access to any memories by phone or text between 10-7 Sunday-Thursday so you can give someone the most authentic specific memories straight from my brain to their ears)
A show (on me) at the FSU School of Theatre (on opening night if time permits!)
I will rent a car and show you the best view of the capitol building (where it looks most like a penis)
A TOUR OF ALL OF MY FAVORITE PUBLIXES INCLUDING SWEET TEA AT EACH LOCATION!!”
Despite everything, Ritter said that she would choose to go to college again. The second time around though, she would change a couple of things, like studying in a city where she could make more money in order to support herself, and finding a more LGBT-friendly school.
