CLASSROOM RULES It is expected that all students will contribute to a supportive and non- discriminatory learning environment by respecting basic classroom courtesy and displaying professional behavior. Late arrivals, disruptive behavior, early departures, ringing cell phones, text messaging and eating are all unacceptable activities that negatively affect classroom learning; they indicate disrespect and inattention to colleagues and the instructor. Students are expected to conduct themselves professionally, actively participate in class discussions, offer their considered, relevant observations, and listen respectfully to others’ opinions, even if these are in disagreement with their own.

    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.

    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.
