The University of San Francisco: Think About It Talk About It

The Course

Going off to college often means experiencing things for the first time, making day-to-day choices that were previously decided by family members or teachers.

Now that you’re on your own, it’s time you gain the knowledge and develop the confidence to make smart, healthy choices that contribute to your success in and out of the classroom.

In order to maintain a socially responsible learning community, USF requires all first-year and transfer undergraduate students and first year graduate students to complete Think About It before arriving on campus. Think About It is a research-based, online training program that empowers incoming students to make healthy choices and to minimize risks associated with alcohol, drugs, and sexual violence.

Think About It Undergraduate Course is a 3-part program

Part 1: Think About It: Turning Points uses an engaging, thoughtful approach to provide students with the tools they need to navigate the risks of life in college before they ever set foot on campus.

Part II: Think About It: Good Friends follows up with students after they have been on campus for several months. It reinforces crucial strategies for bystander intervention with a life-like house party scenario.

Part III. Think About It: The Way Forward trains students to address stalking, abusive relationships, and sexual violence on campus. It covers how to recognize unhealthy relationships and stalking, as well as the best ways to support survivors of sexual violence.

Think About It: Graduate Students Course is only one part and provides sexual assault and sexual harassment training carefully tailored to the unique needs of graduate and branch campus students.
