    In a rather interesting turn of events, Starbucks and Arizona State University are partnering up to offer any employees who work 20 hours a week or more an opportunity to earn an online undergraduate degree.

    A shame that most Starbucks employees already went to college and majored in drawing. ;O;

    Don't you need a college degree to work in Starbucks already?

    Besides, Starbucks employees already get tons of on the job education. They learn words in all sorts of languages, like "grande," "venti," and "large."

    Suddenly an influx of enrollments in Women's Studies went up in Arizona state.

    However, the hiring of higher paying jobs did not.

    If we limit Instagram to that specific geographical location, it will literally become a, "Look at the coffee I got today XD" photo reel.
