Please help me with my poor essay. I am essays overwhelmed. I dont know what to do :( I am an international student so my english is not very good.

I will love your feed back please.

The Davidson community abides by an honor code that governs academic as well as personal life. Please refer to the Honor Code literature at davidson.edu/cms/Documents/AdmissionFinancial%20Aid/Honor.pdf. As a prospective member of our community, discuss the benefits and drawbacks of the Davidson Honor Code and your role in it.

Every student shall be honor bound to refrain from cheating (including plagiarism). Every student shall be honor bound to refrain from stealing. Every student shall be honor bound to refrain from lying about college business. Every student shall be honor bound to report immediately all violations of the Honor Code of which the student has first-hand knowledge; failure to do so shall be a violation of the Honor Code. Every student found guilty of a violation shall ordinarily be dismissed from the College. Every member of the college community is expected to be familiar with the operation of the Honor Code.

In my definition, Davidson honor code is based on trust, honor, and honesty.
The Davidson College community benefits both professors and students by assigning take-home test. Final exams are scheduled by each individual when he/she is ready. It is much easier if professors give a take home test for students without having to worry student's dishonesty. This world will also be much better if we don't have to worry about thieves or robbers. Davidson College uses honor code to maintain an environment so that they can cultivate students with leadership characteristics from a high standard. Davidson College offers a vast number of scholarships to reward students who work hard with honesty. For fairness and honesty, students should set the honor code as a role model and be honest. Lying is not a trait of honor students; Cheating is not the way to enrich our knowledge; stealing is not the way to live life. Davidson College strengthens students on being honest, building trust with the community, learning and improving for students own benefit. Davidson Honor code helps shaping students to be honest for the moral ethic and also create a secure environment for everyone.

The greed always makes one down in ethic. The only drawback of the honor code is that some students might want more awards or better grades without studying hard. They might cheat and break the code without anyone knowing.

To make the honor code work, each individual needs to follow the rules. Davidson College is an ideal learning environment. In order to keep the honor code, the maintenance plays the key role. To me, as a prospective student, I will follow the honor code and take it seriously. Also furthermore defending for the honor code and never tolerate any violation behaviors. I believe after keep emphasizing the importance of the honor code and never tolerate any dishonesty; it will foster a mature, responsible community and form a great climate at school that would not allow any cheating or violation behaviors.

Knowing students at Davidson is bound with honor; it allows students to spend their time learning, pursuing their dreams, and enjoying every moments at Davidson. Only if all the members give the honor code high respect and be loyal, the honor code will be well kept

Thank you for reading it :)
