The Night Watch , 1642 Some specialized terms in Dutch: kloven : musket klovenier : musketeer kloveniersdoelen : headquarters and shooting range of the Amsterdam civic guard company of musketeers (from doel : target) “In the opinion of many, he made the large picture more a work executed according to his own wishes than one of individual portraits, as he was commissioned to do. However, this work, no matter how much it can be criticized, will survive all its competitors because it is so painterly in conception, so swaggering in movement, and so powerful that . . . all other works there stand beside it like playing cards.”—Samuel van Hoogstraten (1678)

    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.
