In addition to their top score from the judges, Venable also was the top fundraiser among all the bands, bringing in more than $20,000.

    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.
