September 2, 1845 Dear Diary, Today we arrived in the wonderful United States of America. My family and I are here to escape the worsening potato famine that has spread across Ireland. My father had to pay a lot of money to bring us to America. The trip here was horrible. We were in the bottom of ship with many others. There was very little room to move around. The people around us were sick with colds from the water that settled in under our feet. Some of the young children and the and women passed away while on the ship. I sometimes wondered if we would make it, but we did make it! It’s so beautiful here in New York City. Getting of the ship there were many men looking to take our bags and offering a place to stay and jobs.

    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.
