Florida State graduate selling 'college experience' on eBay for $50K

Stephanie Ritter is like many other college graduates: underemployed and in debt. So now she's selling her Florida State University diploma on eBay for $50,000.

Selling your degree online is nothing new, but Ritter isn't just auctioning off a piece of paper, she's auctioning off her entire college experience.

According to Buzzfeed, Ritter was cleaning up her room of old high school and college mementos when she came across her degree in Theater.

"I thought this piece of paper has so much worth to so many people, but for a theater 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.”

To solve that problem, Ritter is hoping someone will bid on her 'Authentic Florida State University Experience (FSU) w/Mint Condition Diploma.' 

Here's what you get according to her ad on eBay:

  • 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 
  • A TOUR OF ALL OF MY FAVORITE PUBLIXES INCLUDING SWEET TEA AT EACH LOCATION!!


Ritter says she owes about $40,000 in student loans and  if her package doesn't sell, she'll become a sugar daughter where "a very rich family would adult Daddy Warbucks me" or "I will just do that thing where I pay the minimum for 25 years and then the government feels so bad for you that they wipe it clean."
