Various topics will be proposed for selection. Groups may propose their own ideas but these must be discussed with me prior to any effort.

    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.
