only is this a problem in U.S. households, but American universities also waste enormous amounts of food. Universities all across America have dining halls with mandatory meal plans for first-year students. The most serious problem these meal plans present is wasting enormous amounts of food. Students, staff, and faculty fill their plates with portions of food that are too big for them – picking up a helping heap of everything – which results in excess, most of it, being thrown away. Universities have taken measures to treat the problem and recycle, but they have made no attempts to resolve the problem itself. This is a huge problem at Rutgers University dining halls in New Brunswick. According to Charles Sams, director of the Division of Dining Services, New Brunswick, a single dining hall can produce up to 825 gallons of edible food waste each day (Meisel, 1). If something is done to lessen the food waste itself, Rutgers University could help feed numerous local food banks.

    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.
