Polar Bear Plunge 2022!

Who’s ready to take the plunge? The 26th annual Polar Bear Plunge is coming up soon! The Polar Bear Plunge is a tradition that was started when 35 participants jumped into the icy cold water of the ESRC outdoor pool to celebrate the opening of the building in 1997. Since then, we have carried on the tradition, with a record of 1,200 jumpers in 2014. The plunge is open to all ECU students, faculty, and staff, free of charge.

When: January 20th, 2022, starting at 6:30 pm

Where: Eakin Student Recreation Center Outdoor Pool

This year, pre-registration will not be required but is encouraged for new jumpers. There will be a line to register on-site for those that do not pre-register. Click here to pre-register!
