This saw the inclusion of the blacks in the Hispanic group due to the diversity with the aim of centralizing it.

    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.
