A university in China has grabbed attention for all the wrong reasons, following complaints that 20,000 college students were forced to sign a "life and death contract".
The contract brought out by Shandong Jianzhu University stated that in case a student commits suicide or is injured, the university will not assume legal responsibility if it has performed its responsibilities, China Daily reported.
"The school asked us to sign the contract. It is bad for us. I'm afraid," an engineering management student at the university said.
Li, a staff member of the Department of Student's Work, said the college hopes to make students more aware of safety through this contract.
