  • 6. IST 110S: Academic Integrity 8/11/2009 Freshman seem most susceptible to having their academic integrity challenged. However, these challenges to academic integrity occur at every level of the University. Often times students aren’t consciously looking to break rules, rather they simply aren’t  familiar with what is and isn’t acceptable. College of IST 6
