I am sincerely disgusted by the lack of integrity some students at this university display.
I’m an engineering student here, and you’d think that students in a challenging major at an esteemed university would take pride in that fact and earn their degrees honestly. Unfortunately, that is not the case.
During the past two quizzes in one of my classes, I noticed a student who cheated off of a smart phone.
During an exam for another class, I saw someone who was reading off an index card that undoubtedly had more than one answer on it.
As someone who studies hours on end for the same exams and quizzes, I am infuriated by the dishonesty of some.
Their cheating totally negates my efforts to earn an honest degree.
I have half a mind to raise my hand and call them out on it, but no one likes a tattletale.
Their dishonesty goes unnoticed and possibly earns them higher marks than honest students like myself.
It’s a disheartening, demoralizing fact but at Penn State, it looks like nice guys finish last.
