The three that stand out the most are the attire that is planned for the dances, the parents that are provoking the other students and the administrators of the school for allowing these things to go on. With these three factors, this scenario could be totally different. Everyone within the school and the community knows and understands the majority of the students cannot afford or do not have a coat and tie for the dances that are being put on.

    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.
