ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND RELEASE AGREEMENT
I know and recognize that participation in the English Study Abroad: British & Emerald Isles tour conducted by Brigham Young University-Idaho is done on a voluntary basis without compulsion or coercion and is not a mandatory class requirement. (However, if one chooses to tour, one must take at least three credits. Several classes are offered which fill the BYU-I general education requirements for letters.) I know there may be dangers and hazards associated with the tour and assume the risks associated with participation in the tour, including but not limited to:
Hazards associated with travel, whether by land, sea, or air including airplane, auto, or bus crashes; hazards of hiking, biking, snorkeling, and swimming, such as falls, crashes, being struck by a vehicle, drowning, or suffering physical exertion; hazards of unstable governments and related potential violence; hate crimes; illness caused by food, water, heat, cold, altitude, or contagious disease; assault, theft, or robbery; trip cancellation or change in itinerary and travel plans; acts of God; any activity I decide to participate in during free time.
I acknowledge that these hazards could cause physical or emotional harm or even death.
Knowing the risks, and in consideration for being permitted to participate, and as inducement to Brigham Young University-Idaho to permit me to participate on this tour, I hereby, for myself, my heirs, executors, administrators, or anyone else who might claim on my behalf, covenant not to sue, and waive, release, and discharge Brigham Young University - Idaho, its agents, officers, and employees from any and all claims or liability for death, personal injury or property damage of any kind or nature, and any other claims whatsoever arising out of or in any way connected with my participation in this tour, even though liability may arise out of carelessness on the part of BYU-I, including its officers and employees.
This release extends to all claims of every kind or nature whatsoever, foreseen or unforeseen, known or unknown.
