At first I thought the play was going to be slow and boring, and also that it would be hard to understand. Then, everything started to pick up, and the true characters were starting to come out on stage. One of the best parts for me was that there was so much going on at once, I was occupied the entire time trying to put everything together. Along with that the costumes, music, and acting was absolutely amazing. Las Meninas was set in the France, during a period in the1600’s. So, the culture was something that I wasn’t used to.

    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.
