NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., April 12 (UPI) -- Rutgers University students in New Jersey say they want Bruce Springsteen to visit to ease embarrassment from a recent visit by "Jersey Shore" star Snooki.

Paul Tranquilli and Daniel Oliveto, students at the New Brunswick school, said they started a Facebook campaign to bring Bruce Springsteen to the school in response to the recent visit by Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Monday.

However, the Boss would receive far less than the $32,000 Snooki received for her speaking engagement. The Facebook page for "COLLEGE AVE FREEZE OUT: LET'S BRING THE BOSS TO RUTGERS!" states the organizers hope Springsteen believes Rutgers to be "worthy of a high profile appearance without the enticement of a monetary payment."

The page lists "no spray tanning and juicing" as being among the singer's positive attributes.

"Springsteen embodies the honest, working individual," the page says.
