College Tuition for Son

I have started this fundraiser as I am very proud of my son Dakota.  He was accepted at CU boulder for the Engineering school/Program. He is aspiring to become an engineer, either mechanical or electrical. Dakota was part of the Honor society high school. Maintained a 4.3 GPA  and letter in academics.

He has always had a passion for creating things and making things better. He has a love for cars, woodworking, an avid archer, and creating anything mechanical. He hopes he will get to work for a company like Lockheed Martin someday. 

We had only saved enough for him to go to community college. As a family, we figured he would start at community college and then move onto a bigger university after that. Then he was accepted into the engineering program, the family felt he needed to be with his peers in the engineering program at CU.  This also meant finding a way to pay for his room and board as well.  Tuition and room and board used what little funds we had as one semester can run 17,000, half being tuition.  

Dakota has enjoyed the limited experience and education at college during a pandemic. He does worry about the money for room and board as he will be taking on student loans next semester. Dakota is applying for positions with the college to help pay for tuition. The new plan to make sure Dakota’s College dream comes true is to help pay down the loans as we can and are leaning on other family members who have offered to buy books and such.  Applying for grants, school ships, and hoping crowdfund for education will get him through. Thanks for any help you can offer.
