### What students are saying

• 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.

• The ability to access any universityâ€™s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLAâ€™s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
