According to Dictionary. com,  the correct definition of plagiarism is an act or instance of using or closely imitating the language and thoughts of another author without authorization and the representation of that author's work as one's own,  as by not crediting the original author.  (​

Dictionary. com​

)В PlagiarismВ atВ theВ collegiateВ levelВ canВ

result in serious punishments ranging from academic blemishes all the way to legal consequences.  (6 Consequences of Plagiarism) No matter the setting,  taking someone else's work and using it as your own without giving an accurate citation is wrong.   " Give credit where credit it due. ” In todays day and age,  creating citations may still be a challenge but with the help of websites like EasyBib. com and CitationMachine. com,  citations are made easy.  It's as simple as typing in information about the thing you want to cite and it will generate a citation for you free of charge.   Life in college is much different than life in high school but the same ethics code still exist about plagiarism.  " ​

AВ studentВ foundВ guiltyВ ofВ violatingВ aВ college'sВ plagiarismВ policiesВ canВ faceВ sanctionsВ rangingВ fromВ failureВ ofВ aВ classВ toВ expulsionВ fromВ theВ school. В InВ minorВ instances, В suchВ asВ copyingВ aВ homeworkВ assignment, В instructorsВ mayВ simplyВ failВ youВ forВ theВ work. В However, В majorВ plagiarismВ casesВ involvingВ copyingВ significantВ portionsВ ofВ papersВ orВ projectsВ oftenВ resultВ inВ referralsВ toВ collegeВ judiciaryВ boardsВ thatВ makeВ

judgments and issue sanctions. ” ​

(Kokemuller) If this quote does not scare you I would say you're as fearless as Beowulf himself.  (​
