One student at Technion gets full marks for ingenuity. Staying true to the Haifa institution’s tagline, “Israel Institute of Technology,” he put technology to good use when preparing for an examination. Using his lecturer’s computer, he asked the dean to send him the questions. But the dean smelled a rat, and now the 26-year-old student has been caught. According to Haaretz, the fourth year medical engineering student has been detained but is staying silent, refusing to cooperate with investigations. Perhaps the police could try the student’s own technique, and send him a short email. “Hi. Worried about you. Are the police giving you enough to eat? By the way, what did you do? Are you guilty? Love, Mom.”

In another university-related story, the student union at Bar Ilan University seems to have messed up, choosing to have its start-of-the-year party on Thursday, November 4 — the anniversary of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin’s murder. Some students at Bar Ilan — the university that assassin Yigal Amir attended — plan to boycott the party, according to Ynet.
