I am aware that although Grinnell College has agreed to host me overnight, neither the Office of Admission nor any other office or personnel of Grinnell College will be supervising me during my on‐campus stay. Visiting students, like enrolled students, are responsible for their behavior and are expected to behave as adults within the expectations described below.

I am aware that participants in on campus visitation programs are required to abide by Federal and State laws, local municipal codes and the policies governing student conduct that all students enrolled at Grinnell College are expected to follow. I acknowledge that Iowa law prohibits the consumption of alcoholic beverages by persons under 21 years of age as well as all use of controlled substances.

Further, I understand that the Office of Admission will consider any negative behavior during my campus stay when reviewing my application for admission. My violation of any of the above laws, regulations, codes and/or any damage to Grinnell property may impact my application to Grinnell College.

I give permission for my child to visit Grinnell College. I hereby indemnify and hold harmless Grinnell College, its agents and employees including board of trustees, directors and officers (hereinafter“parties released”). I release and give up all claims, including claims of negligence, I may have in the future against the Parties Released that arise out of my child’s participation in this activity. In case of emergency and if I cannot be reached, I, the undersigned parent or guardian of the child, do hereby authorize a representative of Grinnell College to consent to any medical treatment or care deemed advisable.
