There are 5 needs starting with physiological needs such as food and shelter. Once you have met those needs people next strive for Security in which they look for safety and stability. After security is met then comes affiliation in which people desire friendship and love. The next level up would be the need for achievement and recognition from others.

    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.
