MU freshman Nathan Shepherd and senior Julie Ashner camped out with three other friends for the chance to receive free burritos for a year Thursday from Freebirds World Burrito. "It was really impulse," said Ashner on their decision to camp out. "We saw it on Facebook, and we said, 'We have to do this.' And we're poor college kids." The friends kept themselves entertained with laptops, iPads and the sight of drunken debauchery. "I never got dreadfully bored," Ashner said.
