THESIS: The aura of food was simple yet  fantastic just the same, from the artichokes  to the cornbread, the meal was executed  like a back country feast. When I arrived, the scene that was presented to me  was a sense of comfort and relaxation. The ribs and other entrees brought a great smell in  the light wind from the kitchen window.

    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.
