After the initial invasion competition can begin to arise as the locals and the “invaders” attempt to best the other. If the conflict continues eventually one of the groups will begin to leave the neighborhood. One of the deciding factors is the tipping point.

    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.
