It is the responsibility of the student to keep track of the names and dates of all events attended, as there is no centralized database that links event attendance to individual student records. Attendance credit will not be granted to students that are unable to provide a date and/or name of the event they attended. If a student is unable to provide this information, they will be required to repeat the event.
