Matt Doherty EN083.14 Paper 3 Sr. Carey April 14, 2008 Something in Common Imagine this: You are young and immature, and are thrown into a situation at a live-in school where you know next to no one, live in unfamiliar quarters, and often endure the abuse of your peers. The food is terrible, the work is hard, and you spend a lot of time just trying to fit in. So that’s what Jane Eyre and I have in common! Granted, it is tough to draw comparisons between an upper-class private school American boy from the 21 st Century with a great, loving family to an orphaned, unloved English girl from the 19 th Century. Alas, however, there are many parallels between the young Jane Eyre’s experiences at the Lowood School and my experiences at Boston College during this past first semester. Jane Eyre is a young orphan who is thrown into a terrible situation: an elitist school in which she is automatically made an outcast, when on the first day, the school’s headmaster declares that she is a liar, and that no one should associate with her. She struggles to find her identity at this school, and endures much abuse from the headmaster, Mr. Brocklehurst, and his evil accomplice teacher, Miss Scatcherd. Mr. Brocklehurst embezzles the school’s funds to support his family’s luxurious lifestyle while hypocritically preaching to others a doctrine of deprivation and poverty.

    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.
