Q. Were you allowed to have this drinking experience at home? What made you change your methods of stress relief? A. No I wasn’t. I had to follow the rules of my house and respect my parent’s decisions. But that’s what made the experience so much better after. After I waved goodbye to my parents I had the freedom to decide what I wanted to do, the rules I wanted to establish. It’s not that my stress relief methods changed, I just now had the liberty to express myself in a different way and I liked that! As you can see from the interview, my informant analyzed drinking in a different way. He saw it as liberty. His ability to make his own decisions was finally put into his hands. While I interviewed this person, he made it perfectly clear that his drinking was all on him and not the decision of someone else or the influence of the school. He knew that he wanted to be open-minded and try new things. “Life is about testing yourself and seeing what you can accomplish. Joining the UW drinking scene was a test for me and I passed with flying colors.” Drinking on this campus is not seen as a taboo or something despicable; it is just another opportunity available to you if you chose to jump in and join it. *Note: The informant shall remain anonymous.

    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.
