Wheeler Fever

By Flyby Blog

In response to the case of Adam B. Wheeler—a former Harvard student who was indicted on 20 counts of larceny, identity fraud, falsifying an endorsement or approval, and pretending to hold a degree—the national media and their affiliates scoured the Square yesterday for student reactions. Below, we've compiled some video clips that feature our fellow students.

CNN:

Collin A. Jones '12: "They have a zero tolerance policy for plagiarism, and it's very well understood [...] that if you plagiarize on an assignment or on anything at all for a class you will be in trouble for it."

Wesley N. Hopkin '11: "I think a lot of people would agree with the actions taken by the University or by, I guess, the District Attorney in taking some punishment against this particular individual because it really hurts the reputation of the school."

NBC:

Justin* T. Keenan '10: "He didn't [...] engage that many of us in conversation. He never attended any of the [...] transfer orientation events or anything."

Megan L. Amram '10: "I have worked really hard for my As and Bs and Ds. [...] Don't worry, mom, those Ds are mine!"

*In the video, NBC misidentifies Justin T. Keenan '10 as "Austin Keenan."
