P rior to becoming a junior, I met ____ NAME ___ , a Marine, and as we became better acquainted, he shared with me his travels and experiences. Up until this point, my idea of the quintessential Marine was a gun-toting, Rambo-like machine. However, the more time I spent with NAME, the more that stereotype began to fade. NAME was a calm and serene person, coming from his ability to handle real, high stress situations and the knowledge that the Corps, his brothers, supported him. I had never met someone who had so much pride in the group he belonged, and it was after meeting NAME that I was able to answer some of the questions I had since freshman year. As a freshman, I came home one day with what I thought was indigestion. However, a simple upset stomach quickly evolved into an appendectomy. However after the surgery, my temperature spiked, and I grew paler with each hour. The doctors diagnosed me with intestinal abscess, which I was surprised to find meant “four surgeries” in the span of one month.

    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.
