Academic Honesty/Dishonesty Policy: Your success depends on a combination of the skill
and knowledge of your instructors, and your own hard work. You will reach your future
goals only if you gain new knowledge from every course you take. That knowledge becomes
yours, and can be used by you, only if it is gained through your own personal efforts.
Receiving a grade in a course, without acquiring the knowledge that goes with it,
diminishes your chances for future success. Academic Dishonesty is normally to be
dealt with as an academic action by the instructor, reflected in the student's grade
in the particular course, rather than through college disciplinary procedures. If a
student is found cheating or plagiarizing, options may be taken by the faculty member
to the extent that the faculty member considers the cheating or plagiarism to manifest
the student's lack of scholarship or to reflect on the student's lack of academic
performance in the course. -- Cerritos College Catalogue.
"Almost everything: all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure.
These things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.
Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of
thinking you have something to lose." -- Steve Jobs, Stanford Commencement Address, 2005
"I have never let my schooling interfere with my education." - Mark Twain
One day, you're going to have to make a choice. You just have to decide what kind of a man you
want to grow up to be. Because whoever that man is, good character or bad, he's
gonna change the world. -- Jonathan Kent, Smallville
"In God we trust; all others must bring data." -- unverified author
"Life is nothing without trivia, but nothing in life is trivial." - Don Whitney
Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known. -- Carl Sagan
"There is no reason anyone in the right state of mind will want a computer in their home." - Ken Olson, President of Digital Equipment Corp, 1977
"Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugar water or do you want a chance to change the world?" - Steve Jobs to John Sculley
