Serenity Jackson October 10, 2019 College Experience (XCOR-1000-02) Post 5 Founder’s Day Convocation Founder’s Day Convocation was a celebration the founder of Xavier University of Louisiana, St. Katherine Drexel. She was a woman of integrity who accomplished great things in her life. She was born into a wealthy family. When her parents died, her father’s fortune of $15 million was divided among her siblings and herself. She used her percentage to establish an institution for African and Native Americans. This institution was then called St. Francis Xavier. St. Katherine Drexel's mission was to educate minorities. This was during a time where racism and social injustice was prominent in our country. However, St. Katherine was determined to make her dream a reality. Xavier University of Louisiana has flourished over the years. In 1925, a Teachers College and College of Arts and Sciences was added. Two years later, a College of Pharmacy was added. St. Katherine Drexel is an inspiration to many including myself.

    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.
