Go jump in the lake

That's exactly what ONU students did in the 10th annual Polar Plunge


It’s a bone chilling experience, but someone has to do it – we guess.

Ohio Northern University students provided new meaning to the term ice-breaker with the annual Polar Plunge from on Saturday at the pond inside of fraternity circle.

The annual event, sponsored by Delta Sigma Phi fraternity, raises money for the American Red Cross. Students pay $5 each to jump into the lake or to sponsor a friend.

This is the 10th annual plunge, which raises between $1,000 and $2,000 each year.

Members of the Ada-Liberty Township fire department broke the ice for the jumpers.
