“On my honor, I will abstain from all deceit. I will neither give nor receive unacknowledged aid in my academic work, nor will I permit such action by any member of this community. I will respect the persons and property of the community, and will not condone discourteous or dishonest treatment of these by my peers. In my every act, I will seek to maintain a high standard
of honesty and truthfulness for myself and for the College.”
Welcome! On behalf of the entire PC community and the Honor Council. I would like to extend a warm welcome to you as a new addition to the PC community. As you go through orientation you will learn about the Honor Code and its importance on our campus. Throughout orientation you will meet members of the Honor Council, which is comprised of roughly 55 members who are responsible for enforcing and representing the Honor Code on campus. The Honor Code is a cornerstone of the PC community, and it affords all of us some unique opportunities. It is not uncommon to find personal items left unattended in the library or the cafeteria. Professors can also issue take home tests and can leave testing rooms unattended. In general, the Honor Code is one of PC’s greatest assets and traditions, but most importantly the PC Honor code is an opportunity for all of us to develop and grow together in an atmosphere of trust and moral integrity. I look forward to seeing you all on campus soon. Go HOSE! #PCBLUEPRIDE
