Polar Bear Plunge

Brave ECU students respond to the frigid waters in the Student Recreation Center outdoor pool during the annual Polar Bear Plunge held Jan. 20. A record-setting 958 jumpers participated in the 2011 jump. Jumpers were encouraged to bring a canned food item, with donations going to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. The first 700 jumpers received a free T-shirt and participants were entered into drawings for prizes. (Photo by Cliff Hollis)
