Biola does not assume any responsibility for serious illness or accident on or off­ campus, in or out of university games or activities. The use of school facilities is at the student's own personal risk. Ethnic & International Student Relations The office for ethnic and international student relations 1s a part of the Student Affairs Department. It is one of the signifi­ cant channels through which the university seeks to cultivate a perceptive apprecia­ tion of cultural differences while express­ ing sensitivity to diverse rac ial and cultural groups. Additionally, on-campus student groups provide another form of support for new students as sensitive people who went through periods of orientation to campus li fe reach out to help others. Ac­ tivities which they sponsor include chapels, potluck dinners, local tours, retreats, Bible studies, gospel time ministries and holiday trips. Additional 1nformat1on may be ob­ tained through Student Affairs Depart­ ment.

Discipline Biola University is dedicated to the training of people who are sincere and earnest in their desire to live for Jesus Christ. Because this is true, students are expected to give evidence of conduct con­ sistent with such a profession. The disci ­ plined life is consistent with t he biblical model for a Christian. By enrolling in the university each stu­ dent is entering into an agreement with B1ola to be responsible for certain details of activit y and conduct. This agreement is explained in a "Statement of Rights and Re­ sponsibilities" which every prospective stu­ dent receives as a part of the admissions process Students whose attitudes prove to be uncooperative may be asked to withdraw from the university.
