A student at Ohio State University decided to protest policies there by putting the institution's president, Karen Holbrook, up for auction on eBay, the Associated Press reports. The posting was removed Monday, after bidding had hit millions of dollars.
Some enterprising college students are applying the eBay concept to items students would want to buy and sell. College Junktion offers a range of items, including textbooks, dorm furniture, digital music, clothing, and "other junk."
