SUMMARY Stay on top of your personal stuff, this is the most important thing you could do for yourself as it is your means for survival and to live. Do not give your information so freely and be wary of using your real name even on social media and never put any information on your biography for hackers to access. With the technology usage on the rise, so are the hackers. It is important to ensure your information that is online is at the most minimal and guarded. If become a victim, do not post about it until it is fully resolved to ensure that you do not have a hacker that has access to your profiles.

    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.
