K-State utilizes Think About It, an online, science-based program that provides the latest information about alcohol and its effects on the body and mind. Think About It 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. Whether you choose to drink or not, this program will empower you to make well informed decisions about your own use of alcohol and help you better cope with the drinking behavior of your friends and peers.
This training must be completed once annually beginning July of each calendar year. Any student enrolled in at least 1 credit hour, on or off campus, must take the annual training. The specific training module assigned is based on your age, and undergraduate or graduate student status. Please note that new students who arrived in the spring semester will be required to take the training for the spring and then again in the fall, so that they are on the same cycle (July - June).

As well, one of the purposes of the program is to provide the entire incoming class with a shared baseline of knowledge and awareness of alcohol issues, and to strengthen a shared set of campus norms and expectations around alcohol use.
