Avoiding the pitfalls of plagiarism was the goal of a workshop out at OSU Lima today.
Tutors from the Student Writing Center explained what plagiarism is and how it can affect your academic life on campus.
Plagiarizing someone else's work on term papers or in essays unfortunately is becoming more common thanks to the Internet and the many literary resources that are available.
Teachers also have tools to find out if a student is plagiarizing and if that happens it could result in some pretty harsh penalties according to Amber Roesser with the Writing Center.
Roesser says the Student Writing Center is available for students if they have questions about whether they're staying within academic guidelines or not.
