  • Paige Laurie returns degree to USC

    QUOTE
    COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Wal-Mart heiress Paige Laurie has returned her communications degree to the University of Southern California after being accused of paying a roommate to do her coursework.

    Laurie surrendered her diploma after her roommate claimed last spring that Laurie paid her $20,000 to write term papers required in classes at USC.

    In a September 30th statement, USC says Laurie is not a graduate of the university.

    After the allegations surfaced, the University of Missouri Board of Curators voted to change the name of the then-Paige Sports Arena. Laurie's parents gave Missouri $25 million to help finance the construction of the arena.

        Anyone think the Lauries would like to have the last 6-8 years back for a "do over"?

        I, for one, wish it could be so...

          Will this earn her a degree at Mizzou?

                  i would think she has to pass 3 classes at byu, two at barton college and 2 at southern idaho all at the same time in 6 weeks to get her degree from mi$$ouri.
