Their platform does not necessarily make me like the party, since I do not agree with their policies and I would not vote for their politicians also, since I would not like the policies to be followed as described in the platform.

    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.
