There seems to be a lot of competition over membership and trying to balance business and professional interests; my goal in my work is just that, my work.

    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.
