Dennis Zuo Gazing upon the thunderous ascent of our 13-feet-long hybrid engine rocket, I couldn’t help but thank God for making my childhood dream come true. Ever since my dear uncle left for the United States in seeks of higher education, I had always been counting days and weeks for his cheerful jokes and exquisite stamps that he sent me. Throughout my childhood, uncle had been closest to me, thus I still remember how ambivalent I felt when I watched him departing for an unfamiliar world that is full of excitements and unknowns. I couldn’t foresee whether he made the right choice or not, but year after year I start to believe that no matter what happens, the die must be cast, just as Julius Caesar once said “Alea iacta esto”. It’s not Hollywood movies that compelled me to believe so, nor the tempting stories told about the American Dream, but simply those silent photos that my uncle took from his school campus, a school called the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

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.
