Every day I walk through the Boulder campus, I witness many cultures, religions, and ethnicities interacting and coexisting together. Often I notice that despite their differences, people of complete opposite backgrounds can communicate and discuss such things as religion completely problem free. Other times I notice cultural boundaries and racial differences prove to great a problem to allow people to communicate effectively. Outside of the University Memorial Center I observed a white-Caucasian male interacting with a male of Indian ethnicity. The white male was speaking on behalf of the Catholic Church and held a sign with the words “JESUS SAVES” across it in large blue letters. Both seemed to be deeply engaged in the conversation, both contributing to it with intuitive questions and good listening skills. The white male wore a cross, displayed proudly over his shirt and repeatedly grabbed it as if to emphasize his strong beliefs. The Indian male mostly listened, occasionally interjecting with a brief question or comment. The Indian male seemed to be interested in what the white male had to say. The conversation continued for 10 minutes until the Indian male pulled out his phone and politely excused himself from the conversation. The white male waved goodbye and continued his “preaching” in the UMC square.

    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.
