A 27 year-old woman from New York City, Trina Thompson, is suing the Monroe College, where she got her bachelorâ€™s degree in information technology, because she canâ€™t find a job accusing Monroe’s Office of Career Advancement for not providing her with the leads and career advice it promised.
Monroe College spokesman Gary Axelbank said, “The lawsuit is completely without merit. 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.”
Trina, who lives with her mother Carol Thompson, is seeking the $70,000 she spent on tuition. The family is going through a difficult time and Trina’s student loans are coming due. The mother Carol says, “We’re going to be homeless, and we’ll still have a student loan to pay.”
