Think About It

Part of being a member of our community means participating in an environment grounded in respect for one another. One way to show respect is through engaging in relationships with care and consent.

To help you understand these community norms, all new students take Think About It, an online program that covers topics such as healthy relationships, consent, prevention, and support. It also teaches you how to prevent sexual assault, as well as how to avoid harmful alcohol and drug use. 

Think About It became available to you on August 1, 2016 and you will receive reminders every 2 weeks to complete it. Please complete the course prior to new student orientation and classes -- by September 4th, 2016.
