Your college experience should be one of the most memorable of your life. During this time you will learn more about your gifts and talents and how to use them productively. You also will discover more about yourself as a whole person - your thoughts, ideas, needs, wants and beliefs. You will find many opportunities and challenges along the way, and you need sound information to make healthy decisions.

All actions have consequences. Before you go too far in any direction, stop and think about it.
Think About It: Turning Points provides students with a comprehensive foundation in four areas: sex in college, partying smart, sexual violence, and healthy relationships. This course prepares students before they begin their life in college. Please complete this session by September 2, 2016.
Think About It: Good Friends follows up with students early in their college life to track how their attitudes and behaviors have shifted. It reinforces critical lessons from Think About It: Turning Points about intervening in high-risk situations. Please complete this session by March 17, 2017.
Think About It: The Way Forward addresses students who have spent between seven and nine months on campus and are largely adjusted to college life. It extends learning points from the first two courses about recognizing and supporting survivors of sexual violence. Taking approximately 30 minutes to complete, this course is perfect for a study break, or end of the year refresher. Please complete this session by May 3, 2017.
Think About It: Adult Learners recognizes not all students are of traditional 18-24 college age. Adult learners have unique needs due to their life experience and role on campus. This course recognizes non-traditional students’ position on campus and gives them the tools and skills to help them support their fellow students in a way that is frank, succinct, and relevant. Course content is based on the understanding that non-traditional students have more experience, maturity, and responsibility, and thus Think About It: Adult Learners focuses not just on what to do, but how to do it. Please complete this session by September 2, 2016.
In addition to the sessions listed above, there are additional selective sessions focusing on specific incidents. For more information about these sessions, please contact Alexandria Kelch-Brickner, Assistant Director of Student Conduct by email or call (504) 864-7151.
