President Barack Obama will visit Denver and Grand Junction on August 8, according to an article from the associated press. Following these visits, the president will spend time in Pueblo and Colorado Springs on August 9.

The president’s visit to the University of Colorado in Boulder cost the university roughly $110,000 in fees relating to transportation and security, according to an AP article from the Coloradoan.

“CU says the expenses won’t result in any tuition or fee increases to students, and they won’t reduce campus budgets,” the article states. “Instead those costs are being paid from existing insurance rebates to the university.”
