No, this is not an April Fools' Day joke. 'Jersey Shore' star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi earned a whopping $32,000 to appear at two Q&A sessions at Rutgers University on Thursday night, a fee that exceeds the amount Nobel-winning novelist Toni Morrison will make to deliver the school's commencement speech next month.

Topics discussed at the event, held at the Livingston Student Center, included her "poof" hairstyle, hooking up with guido juiceheads and taking long showers while shooting 'Shore' (because cameras can't follow her there).

According to The Star-Ledger of Newark, money for Snooki's appearance came from mandatory student activity fees, which is funded by tuition. Morrison is being paid $30,000 to speak at the commencement on May 15. That fee is not coming from students, however, but from PepsiCo, which has exclusive vending rights on campus.

Students on the Rutgers University Programming Association, which ran the event, justified Snooks' fee by pointing out that their first choices to appear, comedians Aziz Ansari and Kevin Hart, would have cost upward of $75,000 each to perform.
