I signed up for it right away and I enjoyed a wonderfully taught psychology class my senior year. Fast forward a few months to Monmouth University Freshman Orientation.

As I scan the list, a certain class catches my eye. “I want this one!” I exclaim with such glee that my advisor gives me a strange look. “All right,” she said, “welcome to Into to Psych.” One of the reasons why I was interested in taking an introduction to psychology class was that my major required it.

    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.
