The “Hook” Start with a strong opinion. There are no creatures on this earth less practical than  humans. Start with a question. Cleanliness is considered a virtue, but just what does it  mean to be clean? Start with a quotation. “Let me have men about me who are fat,” says  Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar to Marcus Antonius. Start with an anecdote. Imagine walking on the surface of Mars. You follow the  channels where water is believed to have once flowed.  Seem impossible? It may be in the real world, but not in  virtual reality.

    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.
