A college senior in Oklahoma is defying the odds. He's mustered up enough pennies to pay for his entire college education.

Southwestern Christian University student Andrew Magbee says his tuition cost him $25,000. He says he started saving change long before college, with hopes of graduating debt-free. He's done everything from odds-and-ends jobs to owning his own business in order to achieve his goal.

"It can be done. You can pay your way through school, if you work really hard. It kind of reminds me and will remind me in the future that every little penny counts," Magbee said.

He says he plans to help the university get the pennies to the bank before he graduates next month.
