Calvin Students Jump in Frozen Pond [Photos]
Hundreds of Calvin College students celebrated Valentine’s Day by jumping into an icy cold pond at the annual Sem Pond Jump on Calvin’s campus.
The annual Sem Pond Jump drew a long line of participants, including many who have made the jump before.
Calvin offered a few rules ahead of time.
Rule #2 gives you a good idea of the kind of fun the students were having:
2. You MUST go all the way under the water! You will be booed if you don’t and no one wants that. Let’s hope the water is deep enough for a quick submersion.
Here’s some pictures and comments from some of this year’s participants.

I feel like I'm officially a true Calvin Knight. I took the plunge and jumped into the frozen sem pond, even have battle scars to prove it.
