Tayla Neale SLS1101 Section B04 Going away for college has introduced me to a diverse group of people, specifically my roommate for the summer term. I decided to go away to school a semester early and had to find an apartment in a matter of two days. I finally put my hand on a place but little did I know was that I would be living with a male! Not only was he a male, but also he was, twenty-one years old, Hispanic, and lived a very different lifestyle than me. Being seventeen years old and fully American I found him to be different from me which is why I chose him as the subject of my paper.

    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.
