Password Safe & PasswordMaker
It's no secret that the greatest weakness for most security systems is the user's password. The dilemma is that creating passwords for all the different sites one visits is difficult. Actually, remembering the passwords is more the problem. Password Safe helps solve this problem by securely saving your passwords. This is a free program, so it could be used by your school at no expense. Another system I like is PasswordMaker. It does much the same thing and it has an online version.
This one step can dramatically increase your security to a degree that very few other actions can.
