Instead of attempting to suppress alleged extremism, colleges should actively try to teach all hostile and combative philosophies from both sides of the fence so we may learn from them and learn how to refute them. It is clear based on recent examples that in Europe and America, colleges have not...

The first time I set foot on AACC’s Arnold campus, I had no idea where my life was headed. I remember thinking to myself: “Look, I have this passion for writing, clearly, and I’ve been doing it my entire life. So, do I pick up some skills at school and wing it as an author, or should I pursue...

As an alumnus of AACC, I believe all students should consider learning a trade along with getting a formal education. When I chose AACC, I knew I wanted to work in a field that would have an impact on lives—something more than just sitting at a desk. When I registered for the pre-med pharmacy...

At 20 years old, James Alex Fields allegedly injured 19 people and killed one with his car earlier this month in Charlottesville, Virginia. He’s about the same age as we are. And we’ve seen endless photos of other men our age doing the Nazi salute. We’ve heard many of them pledge their allegiance...

If you give yourself plenty of time to write a paper, you’re less likely to cheat on it. If you understand the instructions and follow them to the letter, you’re less likely to cheat. If you take care to cite every source; you’re less likely to cheat—even when you don’t mean to. That’s...

The story of when I cheated involves a rather unfair experience for me, because the consequences far outweighed the actions. At a university in Maine, some classmates and I were assigned to do a group project. We split up the paper into sections, one for each member. I trusted the people I was working...

Filed under Editorial and Opinion

In my five years as a professor at AACC, I’ve heard lots of excuses for plagiarism. Here are some of them, along with my reactions. I waited too long to start the essay. (Agreed!) I didn’t have time. (You did, but…) No one told me not to. (First, yes I did. Second, why would this be OK?) They...

I am going to graduate this month—after attending AACC for four years. I’ve been here so long because I believe it’s important to take your time with college and figure out what you want to do and accomplish in life. When I got out of high school, I knew I wanted to have a career that involved...

You’re walking up the aisle to take your seat with many others around you. You hear your family from a distance cheering for you as if you have just won a marathon. You stand and walk across the stage. Just like that, you have graduated from community college. Commencement is right around the...

Picture this scene. You’re walking outside underneath a beautiful, eve- ning glow. The sun shines its incandescent rays, now a fading, dim orange, onto the sidewalk in front of you. The sky above seems like it is melting from a creamy, light blue to a darker hue of red. Small oak trees lined in...

Oprah Winfrey once said, “Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness.” For me, passion equals greatness. I learned that after I dropped out of college. I’m the rst person in my family to go to college. After I graduated from An- napolis...
