Please be aware that the University's liability insurance program does not cover injury or sickness sustained by a student; even if these activities result from class or group participation activities such as intramural sports or theater. We encourage you to review your medical insurance coverage to assure that it is adequate. If you do not have coverage, we strongly recommend that you purchase a policy.
