While I stand here imagining when my next meal and shower is going to be, I can’t help but overhear everyone talking about where we’re headed next.

    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.
