Cult. Anthropology-30790 Reflections #1 On a typical bus ride, one may notice but not really ponder the arrangement of the chairs, the choice seating of the riders, or even the concept of not invading another’s privacy by sitting at another, more secluded area of the vehicle. Even in the first few steps one may not even acknowledge the driver, whom all activity is impossible without, and rather routinely slip the money into the holder and casually sit down. These are just a few aspects of how our culture has come to adapt to this daily routine. Even while scratching the surface, some questions may arise: Why are the behaviors of people in our society so alike during this practice? How is it that in such a society that has come as far as we have, ethnocentrically speaking, is so secluded in such simple tasks as communication? As a member of this society I have noticed that people of this society have very low spatial tolerances toward unfamiliar faces which a cause of antisocial behavior. So, under our cultural circumstances, we are bound by the preferences of our societal majority.

    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.
