Mark Stone CSP 100 Chauncey Williams 8/9/07 [email protected] Summer 2007 Receiving my acceptance letter from the University of Michigan meant more then just a four-year academic experience. It meant taking a long-standing legacy further. Originally enrolled in the University of Colorado, I aspired for more. I had a talk with my mother about leadership and how I want to be a leader at a large corporation. I felt that I was just going to be nobody if I attended the University of Colorado and that I wanted something else. No one has dreams and sets goals to be moderate, and I knew the University of Colorado was not the right place for me. After talking to the lacrosse coach here at the University and getting a persistent feeling from him I decided to apply. Constantly dreaming to become a Michigan graduate finally came true on April 18 th when I got my acceptance letter from the university. The feeling I got from reading the letter cannot be replaced by any other feeling in the world. Being told I was going to have to attend The Summer Bridge Program did not come as a set back, but an inspirational tool to get better. The Summer Bridge Program has taught me a tremendous amount. Essential tools such as the correct way to study, how to overcome peer pressure, and the elimination of distractions were just some of the tools I learned this summer.

would tell me, “There is no partying in Michigan, the only party you will be attending is in the UGLI.” I new Michigan was a place I dreamed about attending and that I was going to do anything it took to get into such a great institution. The Bridge Program worked as a metaphorical bridge into college for me and has pushed me into the correct direction for success.

    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.
