One of the rocks he showed me and stated that it was his best find was the sugar bowl thundereggs.

    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.
