I found this very interesting because, strictly based on the observations of my surroundings; I would have assumed a large percentage of the students to be African American. Two other statistics stood out to me as well; 25% of the students that made up the school were considered to be ELL and almost 95% of the students were considered to be economically disadvantaged.

    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.
