But this particular student is ready, in another way. The professor has all the students bring in blue books, which he collects and passes out arbitrarily. Jenny brings in three blue books, one to hand in and two with possible outlines of the test essay. As the rest of the students begin writing the essay, she reaches into her backpack and pulls out one of her ready-made blue books. She also cheats in the French computer labs. "For instance, she gets the multiple choice answers prior and pulls them out while in front of the computer. In accounting, she goes into a test with formulas written on a small piece of paper. "I am the cheating queen," Jenny said. 'The reason I cheat is pressure from my father to do well. I get uptight and my mind goes blank during the exams." Cheating in college is a nation-wide moral problem. Many professors believe it is in epidemic stages not just in college, but in grades kindergarten through 12 as well. There are many types of college student cheaters, with a variety of motivations for cheating. The stories are often filled with intrigue, suspicion, horror, victory and defeat. With only a few weeks left in the 1998 spring semester at UVSC, students will find themselves cramming for finals, finishing last minute projects, and completing any extra credit assignments needed to pull up a grade. However, when tests and assignments prove to be too much, many students feel cheating is the only way to handle the work. There are no hard statistics regarding cheating at UVSC, but according to Lisa Lambert, Director of the Faculty Center for Teaching Excellence, student complaints about cheating are common. Lambert says the Office of Academic Affairs at UVSC is looking into the number of academic dishonesty incidences because it has become such a common occurrence on campus. Elaine Englehardt. Assistant Vice-President of Academic Affairs believes students cheat because, "they need a shortcut. Some students haven't gone to the effort they need to and feel pressure from parents, a job, or scholarship to make the grade." When a student is caught cheating, the measures taken against that person are serious. The extent of the actions taken against a student who has cheated will depend on the teacher. Englehardt says the first time she catches a student cheating they receive a failing grade on SEE CHEAT CONTINUED 0NPG.A4 I ''' f 3 ' y i W r w " I n h V A r-r V) n t ! f f in r J ..s- i 66 tore m. o. 0 Mmm v V .v..

The night began with the introduction of the contestants performing an appropriate number entitled "Dude Looks Like a Lady" by Aerosmith.

Some of the most interesting costumes included a merking, frog, a barrel and a lava lava and tiki necklace.Perhaps the most determining factor of who would win or loose came during the talent portion of the program. Some of the most interesting talents included a waltz with a mannequin, performed by Drew Wright and a stunning photos show by Joey Moon. The excitement of the night came intensified with modeling of unique evening wear. Which by no means included tuxedos.Several contestants felt that their evening wear could be best expressed by wearing bed time attire.

National Guard, UVSC to share new facility ON THE GUARD UVSC has secured more classroom space in -an agreement with the Utah National Guard. By Lisa Ipson News Reporter Utah Valley State College is leasing 6.2 acres of its west campus to the Utah National Guard in exchange for use of 1 1 classrooms and parking space. This new facility will be located on the west side of Interstate 1 5, next to the new Mountainland Applied Technology Center, which is scheduled to be completed this spring. UVSC will benefit from this joint use agreement by gaining access to much needed classroom space, and there will also be an assembly area for our use. "We look forward to this partnership," said Gil Cook, UVSC vice president of college relations and campus support. "We're very pleased that after all the planning, it is finally going to happen. This will be a mutually beneficial relationship."On March 20, the National Guard held a ground breaking ceremony here at UVSC for their new 71,000 square foot facility, which will be called the Orem Military Readiness Center. The following individuals where in attendance: Governor Michael O. Leavitt. Congressman Chris Cannon, President ' Kerry D. Romesburg, Orem Mayor Joe Nelson, Major General James Miller, and Major General Kent Demars. ' The new $7.7 million facility will house the C Companies of the 141st Military Intelligence Battalion, and D Company of the 142nd Military . Intelligence Battalion. Approximately 300 soldiers will use the building for language training and weekend drill training. "The jobs we do here are more academic based, so it works well to combine this facility with UVSC." said Lt. Alex Faletti of the Utah National Guard. Lt. Palettis' battalion will be one of the battalions using the facility. The battalibn that will be working in this facility are' unique in that they are the only two battalions in the country that are completely linguistic. Having this kind of a battalion in Utah County works well due to the high number of return missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints who already speak a foreign language.Orem City will also have a hand in this joint use agreement by donating money for the gynmasium flooring and bleachers in exchange for access of the facility for community programs.
