How Does Chegg Help Students In College

Let's Take A Moment To Appreciate 'Chegg,' The Real MVP Professor

"Chegg" taught me more about biology than my actual biology teacher!


We need to take a moment to appreciate the true professor, the real master, and the one who has been here my entire college career even when things couldn't have gotten worse. And that would be "Chegg." Yes, Chegg, because it was there for me when no one was. At some point, we've all used it, whether it's as simple as renting a textbook to utilizing the tutoring service or the flashcards app. 'Chegg' is a very useful service for any college student, no matter the course or major.

So, can we please take a moment to really appreciate the services Chegg does offer because this website taught me more about biology than my actual biology professor! I mean seriously, have you used their flashcards app? It made my life so easy when it came to memorizing any terms or definitions. I could study on the bus, at work, during lunch, and I never needed to worry about losing all my cards, plus it helped me realize what I really knew versus what I didn't know well.

We all know the feeling of pulling out $300 for just one textbook. Instead, using 'Chegg' can literally save us hundreds of dollars on our semester's textbooks. Why spent $300 on one when you can spend $300 on five or six? Plus renting isn't always an option for a book you may only use for 4 months! Not only did Chegg teach me, but it literally saved hundreds of dollars.

"Chegg Study'" is one of the most important services here, the one thing that taught me more than some of my professors ever could. Instead of staring at a chalkboard or powerpoint all day just do not understand any of it or the professor is just terrible at the subject, you could get helpful info from Chegg Study right after class at almost any time. Need test prep? You got it. Having trouble in math? No problem. Still having trouble writing that essay? Check out your grammar, citation, and more here! There are step-by-step solutions to any problem you have in a book, and if that's not enough, tutors are online 24/7!

So here's a true shoutout to the thing that held my hand and told me I was going to be okay when I didn't understand what was happening in class. Chegg has made the race to the finish line of graduation just a little easier and because of that, it deserves all my respect. Thank you for helping me survive college, Chegg, because I'm not sure what I would do without you!

To The Friends I Won't Talk To After High School

I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.


So, for the last four years I’ve seen you almost everyday. I’ve learned about your annoying little brother, your dogs and your crazy weekend stories. I’ve seen you rock the awful freshman year fashion, date, attend homecoming, study for AP tests, and get accepted into college.

Thank you for asking me about my day, filling me in on your boy drama and giving me the World History homework. Thank you for complimenting my outfits, laughing at me presenting in class and listening to me complain about my parents. Thank you for sending me your Quizlets and being excited for my accomplishments- every single one of them. I appreciate it all because I know that soon I won’t really see you again. And that makes me sad. I’ll no longer see your face every Monday morning, wave hello to you in the hallways or eat lunch with you ever again. We won't live in the same city and sooner or later you might even forget my name.

We didn’t hang out after school but none the less you impacted me in a huge way. You supported my passions, stood up for me and made me laugh. You gave me advice on life the way you saw it and you didn’t have to but you did. I think maybe in just the smallest way, you influenced me. You made me believe that there’s lots of good people in this world that are nice just because they can be. You were real with me and that's all I can really ask for. We were never in the same friend group or got together on the weekends but you were still a good friend to me. You saw me grow up before your eyes and watched me walk into class late with Starbucks every day. I think people like you don’t get enough credit because I might not talk to you after high school but you are still so important to me. So thanks.

With that said, I truly hope that our paths cross one day in the future. You can tell me about how your brothers doing or how you regret the college you picked. Or maybe one day I’ll see you in the grocery store with a ring on your finger and I’ll be so happy you finally got what you deserved so many guys ago.

And if we ever do cross paths, I sincerely hope you became everything you wanted to be. I hope you traveled to Italy, got your dream job and found the love of your life. I hope you have beautiful children and a fluffy dog named Charlie. I hope you found success in love before wealth and I hope you depended on yourself for happiness before anything else. I hope you visited your mom in college and I hope you hugged your little sister every chance you got. She’s in high school now and you always tell her how that was the time of your life. I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

And hey, maybe I’ll see you at the reunion and maybe just maybe you’ll remember my face. If so, I’d like to catch up, coffee?

Don't Be Afraid of Changing Your College Plan

It really isn't THAT bad...


I can't claim to have any deep wisdom on life, but I at least have some good experience with a highly turbulent college career. I started as a game design major in a tech college in Rochester, NY, transferred to a college in Texas, and now I'm an English major at CofC.

My college life has been something of a roller coaster.

But I regret none of it. Maybe it would have been easier to stick to the track I was on initially, but I would never have been fully satisfied with it. Now I've finally found my place and, even though it may have taken a lot of shifting around, it was undoubtedly worthwhile.

I don't mean to say that everyone who is slightly dissatisfied with their major should transfer all over the country and change their major(I had to sacrifice the ability to get a minor because of the path I took, so I wouldn't recommend it to most people). I just believe that if you find yourself not liking the classes that are vital to your major or if you can't find a place at your current college, then changing your major or transferring isn't as horrible as you might imagine.

When I started college I was completely confident in what I wanted to do and what my future would look like. I thought it would be ridiculous for someone to stray from their initial path. That idea led to me deciding to transfer later than was smart.

I think everyone should know that having to change your plans for the future, sometimes in dramatic ways, isn't a bad thing. No matter how scary transferring and changing majors can seem, many people have done it before you and many will after, you aren't alone.
