From time to time, students at Illinois College participate in activities which take them off the campus. In all cases, students must follow the directives of faculty or staff leading the activity and represent publicly the values of Illinois College. In most instances, such as field trips, athletic contests or music performances, these off-campus trips are short in duration. Students are expected to sign a release of liability in order to participate in these programs each term. More extended trips such as travel abroad will have specific releases of liability to be signed by parents and students as a condition of participation. Off-campus activities undertaken outside the programs of the College are at the individual liability of the student.
