Can you cite Wikipedia in a college paper?


My professor told us to cite trusted sources only. Do you think it is a bad idea to cite Wikipedia in a college paper?

    I feel that it is unprofessional to cite wikipedia. If you can't be bothered to do actual research then you have a problem.

    Many schools specifically say you cannot use Wikipedia.
