So I sat there and I listened. The noise I heard was like violent banging, only it came on occasion rather than consistently.

    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.
