No wonder no one is ever reported to have been satisfied with working because no one has ever understood his or her true identity.

    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.
