So I took the Honor Code survey, and when they asked for comments at the end…
I don’t believe it’s the students’ responsibility to police each other while taking an exam or working on other homework. It creates an atmosphere of paranoia that discourages and often even punishes cooperation, and it does so much more than it fosters academic integrity. Numerous students and professors have said that the processing time is so long, and guilty verdicts handed out so infrequently, that they don’t even bother with reporting violations.
The Honor Code is an artifact of an ancient era, and if Valpo wants to move out of its conservative bubble of 1950s thinking, it needs to shed it.”
Let’s be real now, has the Honor Code ever stopped someone from cheating? Really??? In my experience, it didn’t seem to foster any particular paranoia, mainly because it never came up in any meaningful context. The act of writing the Honor Code is just one of Valpo’s numerous hollow rituals that exist in the golden nostalgia of tradition. Students who cheat get punished within the individual professor’s domain because dealing with the Honor Council has always been more trouble than it’s worth. This is because the Honor Council is full of bureaucratic pedants who are too tied up in technicalities to ever make the decision to give a meaningful punishment.

Well you know, Matt, was really nice to me and as Jenna was too — they were both very welcoming to me when I came into the Tardis. Matt said to me, to look after Doctor Who, and he gave me his watch that he wears and he-he said that in his own way he was happy that it was me that was becoming him. So, I will do my very best, to be as fun and as friendly as he is — I’ll be different, ‘cause I’m different. (x) (x)

god people are stupid.
Oh dear lord, I should never ever listen to myself when I ask, “how bad could it be?” I am laughing and exercising every ounce of restraint to avoid spending the evening deconstructing their arguments because logic would clearly be wasted in this situation.
