Student's Course Fee is 15 Tonne Orange

A cash-strapped college student Wu Xiaobin in paid his course fees and living expenses - with five tonnes of oranges. He lives in China.


Wu Xiaobin drove two truckloads of mandarin oranges more than 130 miles from his home on a farm in Quzhou to his college in Hangzhou.


He decided to try to sell the oranges as he couldn't otherwise afford to continue his studies at Zhejiang University of Media and Communications.


"This year my hometown had a good harvest of mandarin oranges, but due to the economic downturn and rumours of orange parasite infections, few sales could be made," said Wu.


"I spent the whole winter vacation helping my father try to sell the oranges but with little success."


Instead, his father gave him a third of their farm's 15 tonne orange harvest for him to try and sell in Hangzhou to pay for his studies.


And, thanks to local media covering his story, he sold all of the oranges within an hour of his trucks arriving on campus.


Companies bought boxes of oranges for their staff to support Wu and local families also came to buy fruit to help him stay on at college.
