Parental, friend or sweetheart visits, missed transportation connections, mild colds, headaches or hangovers, unofficial trips away from the Campus, etc. are not an acceptable pretext for missing class.
It is assumed that students will have a copy of the textbook on the first day of class. Further materials may be assigned by the instructor. These materials will either be handed out in class or may be found on the syllabus web page for downloading.ACADEMIC INTEGRITY
Plagiarism is the representation of another's words, ideas, programs, formulas, opinions or other products of work as one's own either overtly or by failing to attribute them to the true source, from the internet or otherwise, and is subject to disciplinary action as described under violations to the Syracuse University code of Student Conduct.
