After completing this ecological footprint, it has given me a desire to make better choices that are more helpful to preserving our planet. To start, one thing I can do a better job at is carpooling with friends if the opportunity presents itself. By doing this, less carbon emissions are being dispersed into the air meaning less gases. Another step I can take is to shut off power to things I am not using around the house. A lot of the times things are left on, which are not serving any purpose at the time and also concurrently causing more carbon to be released into the air. Also, it runs up the electric bill and I for one do not want to pay extra for things that I am not using. Some barriers that stand in the way of these changes is living in a house with three other guys means that we all have different agendas and places to be at different times. With that being said, it is really difficult to find ways to incorporate carpooling on a daily basis. Also, turning off electricity to things we are not using in our house can be very tedious and some of the guys might not agree with turning certain things off.

    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.
