A Colorado University student has made a statement about the cost of higher education by paying his tuition fees in cash.

Nic Ramos said staff were ''not too pleased'' at having to count $14,000 in single dollar bills.

University spokesman Michael Carrigan said the faculty had sustained millions of dollars in cuts, and the State of Colorado needed to step in.
