Complete Think About It Training
- Think About It is a comprehensive online training program that prepares students to confront and prevent serious campus problems such as substance and sexual abuse. You may only access the program through the email you will receive from Dean of Students Rosalyn Eaton-Neeb on July 28. You must have completed the Think About It training in order be able to register for your Fall 2016 courses. Because it takes about two-and-a-half hours (though you don’t have to do it all at once), you are encouraged to complete it by August 15, but no later than August 28, so it is done well before registration time.
