Offer suggestions about how the class could operate more efficiently, and about what areas of study might be included, expanded or eliminated. This class was very different than what I thought it was going to be. I took it as a women’s studied class and thought it was going to be more about The Gods and women – I did not realize it was an African American Studies class. The concepts in this class are very different than anything else I have learned and therefore did expand my prior knowledge about the subject, considering my prior knowledge was whatever I saw on television and in the media. I did not know much about the African American experience, especially relating to women, because we do not really learn this much about it in school. We are taught the basics about how slavery was bad, but nothing about how it affected the people that were enslaved. I appreciate this class very much, because being a slightly ignorant little white girl from the white suburbs of Chicago was not very culturally stimulating.

    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.
