A recent graduate is suing her alma mater after failing to find work after gaining her degree, alleging the university did not support her enough in finding work.
The woman, a 27-year-old graduate of New York’s Monroe College, recently received in April a degree in information technology from the establishment at a cost of some $70,000.
However, after graduation she could not find work. In the time honoured tradition of American litigation, she opted to sue the college to recoup her tution fees, filing a lawsuit at the Bronx Supreme Court alleging “They have not tried hard enough to help me,” and that they did not provide the support promised.
Her mother chimes in that her daughter is “very angry at her situation” as she had “put all her faith” in the institution’s job finding prowess.
The college for its part scathingly dismisses her allegations, saying “The college prides itself on the excellent career-development support that we provide to each of our students, and this case does not deserve further consideration,” and that the case is “completely without merit.”
