So far college has been pretty good to Ball State University freshman Markus Burden. Not only was this his first day of college, this is the first time Ball State has ever done anything like this to offer free tuition…it may be the last as well. Burden’s shot was valued at $11,084.
“I called my mother right after when I won,” Burden, 18, said. “When we were walking outside I was basically in tears telling her that her son just won us free tuition.”
