Student Pays College Tuition With 230 Pounds Of Coins
World

Colleges seem to be raising their tuition every semester. Fed up with it? Well so was one Mount Royal University student in Canada. Devin DeFraine had had enough when he found out that if he were to pay his college tuition using a credit card, he would be forced to pay an additional 1.89%.

DeFraine, whose tuition was roughly $3,000, would be asked to pay an additional $60 to attend classes at the university located in Calgary, Alberta. So he decided to stick it to them.

He came to the school’s registrar’s office lugging 230 pounds of rolled up coins. He paid his tuition in full.
