Instructions for Warm-Up Exercise: Take a few minutes to look at the “I Give Because” page on the wall. Using the stickers provided, mark the statements that apply to you and how you make decisions in your own nonprofit giving. You may mark as many statements as you like. If there is something that you would like to add (another reason why you give), write it on a post-it and add it to the “I also give because…” box at the bottom. If someone has added a statement in this section that you feel also applies to you, you may add a sticker to that post-it.

    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.
