# This hero student at Duke played Wii during class because he can

Is he a badass or what?

Duke University is one of the most academically rigorous colleges in the nation.

That said, classes could be a pain.

But this student found a way to cope with his stress by playing Wii Tennis on his laptop in a class:

So, let's see:

Duke charges \$51,510 for tuition a year.

So, it would be \$51,510 / 2 = \$25,755 per semester.

There are approximately 15 weeks of classes in a semester. Hence, \$25,755 / 15 = \$1,717 per week.

And most classes have 150 hours of teaching time every week, so \$1717 / 150 = \$11.45 per minute.

Assuming this student needed time to set up the game and paid attention to class for a little bit, I'm going to guess and say he played for 30 minutes. This means that this kid managed to spend \$11.45 x 30 = \$343.40 worth of Duke education on Wii tennis because #ballingislife.

And this, my friends, is the Duke Difference.
