Hello. My name is Andres and I'm a freshman at Chapman University as a Biology major. First semester was a tough transition both socially and educationally but I was able to end the semester with very satisfactory grades, but now my continuation as a college student may be jeopardized. Our family has been caught in a serious dilemma as the payments have become greater than our budget allows. As of now, it has come to our attention that we need $2,500 dollars by Friday, January 30th to continue my education at Chapman University and eventually graduate with a BS in Biology. This amount would help me move towards taking classes needed to eventually start research in the field of cancer cell biology. Even after scholarships, financial aid, and loans given to us by the school and outside sources, we still need more to cover the overdue balance for first semester. Without this money, not only will I not be able to return and continue classes, but all my work from first semester will not count as transcripts will not be received. Please help me make the most out of all the hard work done first semester and help me continue to strive towards graduation. Any donation is a step towards my goal and is extremely appreciated! Thank you!
