According to Aristotle, a person is flourishing by being a good person, the right actions will follow effortlessly (Aristotle , 1931 ).

Adhering to a good nature proper functioning good that fulfills its function and bad if it does not. Having virtue just means doing the right thing, at the right time, in the right way, in the right amount, toward the right people. Being virtuous, to you know what to do, all the time, you know now to handle yourself and how to get along with others ( Nussbaum, n.d.).

    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.

    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.
