Now-a- days the dating scene is transforming into a more casual, go with the flow type of lifestyle making dating extremely obsolete from how college students used to interact.

    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.
