Despite its ideal setting and status from America’s victory in World War II, there are certain flaws that are usually not observed unless carefully researched. Suburbia, in general, is all too perfect, and one of its flaws that I noticed still remains a common problem today.

    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.
