DURHAM, N.C. – A Duke University student is paying for her tuition by performing in adult films.

According to an article in the Duke Chronicle, the woman is a freshman and describes herself as a "college Republican and aspiring lawyer". Her real name has not been released.

The Chronicle reports that the information about the student's job spread across campus after another freshman recognized her while he was watching pornography. The woman confirmed she is in adult films and asked him to keep it a secret. But the man told people while attending a fraternity rush event.

The estimated cost of tuition at Duke University for the 2013-2014 school year is more than $60,000.
