According to Wikipedia (yes I know it is no the perfect source, but...), it says this about Berkley: After completing high school, she became the first member of her family to attend college when she enrolled as an undergraduate at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. She became a member of Delta Zeta sorority. Elected student body president of the Consolidated Students of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas her senior year, Shelley graduated with honors in 1972, earning a B.A. in Political Science. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shelley_BerkleySo, when did Berkley join the sorority? If she joined it her freshman year, then she is lying about living in an apartment and only spending $10 a week in food. And $10 of food in the late 1960's is a whole lot different than it is today. you probably buy a steak or two along with most of your food for a week for $10 in 1968-72.
10 lb potatoes 69 cents
chicken whole $1 to 2
hamburger 59 cent lb
steak/fish 1.99 lb
pork chops 1.99 ;b
to sum it up i could take $20. a week and buy food for 2 to eat breakfast and dinner for the whole week and buy supplies, tp. laundry soap, cleaning supplies another $5.00 and cigs were $4.00 a carton oh how i wish the prices would roll back to back then http://www.ask.com/questions-about/Prices-of-Food-in-1968 Surely, Berkley wasn't suffering back then.
And if her family lived in Las Vegas, why did she have to live in those conditions? wouldn't living at home be better?
Once again, something doesn't seem right here and me wonders if Berkley is lying again about her time in college and her living conditions.
