Word on the Street: Does seeing other people cheat upset you?


I mean, since I’ve been here, I haven’t seen anyone cheat yet. (But) I think they’re cheating themselves because they’re paying their money, so they’re just wasting their time. It doesn’t upset me personally because, I mean, some people just want to get their diploma and go, so it doesn’t upset me.

I think, yeah, it upsets me because – of course you’re learning for yourself (but) you’re exploiting their knowledge. I think everyone should have their own knowledge.

It upsets me a little bit if, like, I’ve taken the class and if I see someone cheating and like getting credit for doing something I worked hard to achieve… I try not to make it my business but it does passively upset me.

Well, of course it makes me feel not comfortable. First it’s unfair (when you do that), and I’m not a professional person in academics. I mean, I know not only in the US but in the world, academics is important … you’re cheating yourself, it’s not good, it’s bad. It’s disappointing.

Not really, that’s their business, it has nothing to do with me… That’s their business, so I don’t let what others do affect me.
