Ball State Freshman Hits Half-Court Shot, Wins Free Tuition for a Semester

Ball State University incoming freshman Markus Burden nailed a half-court shot during the school’s Welcome Week to win a semester of free tuition. Including room and board and university fees, that adds up to a little more than $16,000 for the out-of-state student. The school shouldn’t feel too much of a pinch, though, as they still have Burden on the hook for more than $112,000 over the next 3.5 years.

Higher education!
