Ode to School By Karna Upadhyay Too much containing, not enough relating Too much sedating, the message has been fading I’m locked in this herd’s mindless race until the end But I can’t see the finish let alone a bend This façade of education that’s become more like sedation Has but one need: categorization So as I’m placed and prodded and poked to point That the people in power and appeased to anoint me passable It’s almost laughable, because I stop Because I’m not a percentile that determines if I’m average And I won’t stand and smile as my soul begins to languish And I can’t be fed bullshit and expected not to be famished I can’t stand this

    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.
