It is important that all students be aware of the expectations for behavior that PLU has for its members and the policies in place to outline these standards.  Think About It prepares  college students for the  challenges and responsibilities of college life. Focusing on minimizing the risks associated with alcohol, drugs and sexual violence, Think About It takes a harm-reduction approach that resonates with students and results in a healthy campus culture that fosters learning and growing intellectually.  This module is required for all incoming students and creates a common understanding.

Access to the module will be  emailed to your email account 30 days before the start of the term or within 3 business days after creating your ePass account within 30 days of the start of the term.  The module is required to be completed before the first day of classes. Failure to complete  the module will result in a hold being placed on your student account.  You will need to have registered for your PLU ePass to complete this module.
