I live in a football driven community, one of those types of towns that you see in movies where the entire town shuts down every Friday night to attend the high school football games.

Being a senior, it was my turn to watch my friends sign scholarships. All of my friends had decided to sign their scholarships on the same day and we would go have a party that night. The night was picked for the last Saturday in April. On the morning of that Saturday, I walk into Marshall’s living room to see Marshall, a kid so dark that you can not see him at night unless he has his eyes opened or is smiling, sitting there with his shirt off and a USC hat on. “I’m going to be a Trojan next year!” he said excitedly. “That’s insane,” I said joyously, “I can’t wait to watch you on TV next year!” What’s the deal with everyone else I asked? “Mike is going to Texas A & M, Gildon and Casey are both going to Oregon, Cory, is going to Boise State, Duke is going to Florida, Joe is going to Utah, Marc is coming to SC with me and you obviously saw Jimmy I’m assuming (Jimmy made his

    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.
