Alumna sues college because she hasn’t found a job

NEW YORK (CNN) — 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.”

The college responded that it offers job-search support to all its students.

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.

How I wish Nigerian graduates can sue their Universities for providing them less-than-average quality of education. Even all the VCs should go to jail.

  1. This is a trend in this country. I graduated Valedictorian from ITT Tech with a Bachelors in Applied Science three years ago, and I still cannot find a job. At the moment I am working 15 hours a week for 8.00 dollars an hour. This has become a joke in my life, has caused me both mental and physical anguish, caused me to loose most of my property because of having to sell it for gas money, and still the vultures swarm wanting money every month for a degree I am not using. I would love to get a class action lawsuit going against these schools.
