The Jersey Shore personality - real name Nicole Polizzi - was reportedly paid $32,000 (£19,500) to appear at Rutgers University, the largest college in New Jersey.
A number of students have created the Facebook campaign entitled 'Let's Bring the Boss to Rutgers!', and are hoping that the New Jersey-born rock star will appear.
Organiser Daniel Oliveto told Asbury Park Press that Snooki's message to "study hard, but party harder" was displeasing.
Snooki was paid $2,000 more than Nobel-winning novelist Toni Morrison when she recently appeared at Rutgers University.
Snooki previously revealed details of her upcoming spinoff show with fellow-Jersey Shore member JWoww.
Guitarist Steven Van Zandt hinted that Springsteen may soon release a new solo album.
