Our networks grew and we saw the importance of these relationships that existed outside of the family. Social capital is a relatively new term that explores the value of these relationships.

    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.
