From the stands of the Red and Sheri McCombs swim center, I was able to watch the team practice on five different occasions and actually got to interview former Texas swimmer and Olympian Garrett Weber-Gale. I don’t have much of a swimming background besides swimming in a few competitive events when I was eight or nine years old, but from watching a legend I felt like I learned a lot.

    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.
