Gwendolyn Day Raised in suburbia in fast-paced New Jersey, relocating to Kentucky for my dad's job just might have been a death sentence for me back in 2004. Growing up sheltered, I had only heard of the “South” on TV through shows like the Beverley Hillbillies and the Dukes of Hazzard. My idea of a Kentuckian was an overall wearing, moonshine running, no teeth, barefoot, rifle carrying boy with a huge truck. I thought Kentucky was nothing but back roads and rundown farms. Stepping out of the car the day my family and I moved here, I had a wake-up call. I was back in suburbia. There were still farms but these farms were beautiful with the most horses I have ever seen. Who would have known that I would fall in love with Kentucky? Kentucky is breathtaking. From the magnificent landscapes to the many friendly, genuine people to some good fried chicken, Kentucky is a wonderful state to live in. My idea of Kentucky was definitely challenged the moment I actually stepped foot in the state.

    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.

    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.
