All teenagers will inevitably come into contact with alcohol and should be prepared for these experiences by being taught and encouraged to find what amount is healthy for them so that they do not hurt themselves. This campaign also contains many other flaws beside the one I just pointed out.

    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.
