The beating sun reflected the shinny black paint that coated the car. I felt its rays on my bare skin while consciously appreciating the summer heat. At eighty miles per hour, we were cruising down the farmland roads of northern Wisconsin. My friend and co-worker, Jack, kept glancing at his iPhone for directions on how to get us back to camp. The road was clear and the four of us let go of all our stress that had gathered from spending so much time with our campers for the past six days.

The four of us began singing along as I leaned back in my seat and threw my arms up in satisfaction. I felt calm, as if nothing in the world could touch me and bring me down.

    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.
