There is an abundance of coming of age rituals or rites of passage into adulthood. They range from what we look at as ordinary like a sweet 16 or Quinceañera or maybe even graduating high school and of course the Bar and Bat mitzvah. Then you have the rituals of other nations that can seem extremely odd to us in the US. The Amish practice an interesting rite of passage ritual. The practice e of Rumspringa is observed by all youth before they are considered an adult in the community. It is a period when Amish youth experience greater freedoms. The Amish culture is extremely primitive, they exclude most of the outer world and technologies. This makes Rumspringa an opportunity to experience life before entering into the community as an adult. Experimenting with “worldly” activities—buying a car, going to movies, wearing non-Amish clothes, buying a television attending parties, drinking or smoking all things that are forbidden, fully immersing themselves in modern culture.

    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.
