Telling the Truth
Students debate on academic integrity issues

"Cheaters prosper, Engineering Senator, Nicolas Cornor said. 'Martha Stewart, Haliburton, Enron and Microsoft are accurate representations that honesty in the public doesn't get you anywhere,' the aerospace engineering sophomore said.

Patricia Nickel, testing assessment services coordinator, rebutted by saying students have a responsibility to hold up the university's reputation even after they leave. 'If you cheated your way through school and you don't really know the material, you are hurting the university,' Nickel said. 'These people go out into the work force and represent UTA. If they look bad, we look bad.'

Cornor and Nickel were panelists at the Academic Integrity Debate on Tuesday. The debate was the second event of Academic Integrity Week, sponsored by Student Judicial Affairs."
