Unauthorized collaboration during an exam
A student of senior standing was referred to Student Judicial Affairs (SJA) for allegedly collaborating and/or copying during an exam. The professor referred the student after noticing similar incorrect markings on her exam, compared to those of another student. The suspected student admitted to copying from her friend without her classmate‘s consent. The student agreed to deferred dismissal status until graduation, 20 hours of community service, and completion of a paper project. The case was closed, and the student failed the class due to having received a zero on the exam.
Drug possession in the dorms
A first-year student was referred to the SJA office for having drugs in his dorm room. After a few residents complained to the resident adviser that a malodorous smell was emanating from a room, the RA went to investigate the matter. Upon entering the suspected room, the RA noticed that some marijuana was visible in glass jar on a student‘s desk. After speaking with the police, the accused student admitted to having drugs in his room that he destroyed before the police arrived. The student agreed to probation through winter quarter of 2009 for violating student housing policy regarding illegal drug possession.
A student was referred to SJA for violating the university‘s alcohol policy. While patrolling the main campus, a police officer spotted a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot. The officer observed that the occupants threw beer bottles out the window as the officer approached them. The front passenger tried to conceal his beer by sitting on it, and then proceeded to physically resist the officer. The belligerent student was arrested and agreed to disciplinary probation through spring 2009. In addition, he agreed to get counseling through UC Davis‘ Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention and Treatment program.
