From the first assignment to the last, I have been getting constructive criticism from multiple sources. These sources varied from peer to instructor, with a few steps in between. The assignments were also varied, yet were centered on a common theme, which made the class more interesting. Prior to coming to class, I had heard of the “This I believe” web site, and had even heard a few of the essays on National Public Radio. I had never however read any other essay than the few featured essays posted on the web sites home page the few times that I was there.

Naturally I found this subject easy to write about and quickly cranked out a four page rough draft for class on that Monday.

    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.
