September 23, 2013 University 101 Journal 1 The USA Today article was completely relatable to me.  I know exactly how the  author was feeling and the point she was trying to make.  The first couple days or so I  thought this was going to be the best time of my life.  Carefree, happy, in control of my  own life – things I always thought I wanted.  But to be honest, that “new car smell” of  college went away just as quickly as it came.   I gradually became more and more homesick as time went on.  I missed the  familiar comforts of my home, my perfect bed, my dog, and my friends.  Like the author,  however, I put on a “mask” to cover up how I was really feeling.  I didn’t want anyone to  know that I wasn’t having the best of times here and that anything was bothering me.  I’m supposed to be that kid who allows nothing to faze him or get the best of him – but I

Unformatted text preview: wasn’t. Now my life is more stressful than ever because I am currently pledging to a fraternity. All my free time outside of class is devoted to the fraternity. I have no time to really do what I want to do. I know it will be worth it in the end but as of now I’m completely tied. Other than that USC itself is a great place. There are friendly people everywhere you turn. The teachers are fantastic and incredibly helpful and the atmosphere itself is overall a positive one. I know I will over come whatever “challenges” or “difficulties” I’m facing now so I’m not entirely worried. But I’d be lying if I said that my life was “perfect” right now – much like the author of the article....

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
