Week 1: Academic Integrity
Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught.
—J.C. Watts (American politician and Canadian Football player from Oklahoma)
Personal integrity is where academic integrity begins, but not everyone considers "right" and "wrong" in their daily lives. Consider what you would do in either of the following scenarios:

You're sure that your child can pass for a 4-year-old even though she celebrated her 5th birthday a couple of months ago. Do you try to have her admitted for half price? Or do you pay full price?
Scenario 2: You're tired. It's late at night. You're reading a fairly obscure book, one that your instructor is likely unfamiliar with. You are seized with the temptation to copy a paragraph or two from the book, if not word for word, then nearly so. Do you give in to temptation?
What is the right thing to do? What are the consequences? Will your decision have more far reaching effects than simply getting a cheap movie ticket or finishing your schoolwork?
