Getting into college after being out of high school for over ten years was one of the hardest things I have ever done in my life, and it was at that moment when my family financial wasn’t sound is just like a dream for me to know that I am a real college student.

I knew that I need this I needed school to be able to adequately provide not only for my children but for my sisters and my mother. School is life and I need it to survive.

    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.
