A student at the University of Colorado showed his displeasure over the tuition fee hike in the US by paying his US$14,000 (S$18039) tuition fee for the spring semester in US$1 bills. According to a news report, sophomore Nic Ramos spent about a couple of weeks assembling the dollars bills and walked into the university carrying the cash in a 15kg duffel bag. STOMPer Bo Liao , who read the story online, said: "I came across this piece of news of an American guy protesting against the school fee hike by paying his $14k semester fee in small denominations of USD 1." Nic Ramos said the clerks at the university spent nearly an hour counting all the money. Ramos said of his daring stunt: "When you walk in with a 33-pound duffel bag of cash, you know it puts a lot into perspective. "It made me really appreciate that people are willing to give up that money to go to school."
