Brainstorming During the first day me and my partner thought about doing a fish, a tractor, or a truck.

    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.
