Kyle 1 of 1 Kyle is a 19-year-old college sophomore who was functioning reasonably well until finals week, when he began using large abounds of crack cocaine because he felt unprepared to take the tests. He began having the delusional belief that he was being watched by the police and that his parents were having him followed by a detective. Kyle became convinced that his roommate was an informer for the college president and developed the idea that the college president was giving nightly reports to his parents on his study habits, performance in class, and drug use. Finally, one night about a week after these delusional symptoms began, Kyle became extremely excited and agitated and threatened to hurt his roommate if he continued to inform on him. Kyle’s roommate became seriously alarmed at Kyle’s behavior and called campus security. This action reinforced Kyle’s conviction that his roommate was a hostile spy who had been observing him and informing on him.

    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.
