UTA celebrates the National Recreational Sports and Fitness Day with an event that only braves might enjoy. The Polar Bear Plunge is a fun but very cold event, where the students and staff were invited to jump into the cold waters of the outdoor pool at the MAC. The Campus Recreation Department was in charge of this unforgettable and significant event. The plunge was very important because it the first time that it has been done here at the university but also because it is going to become a new tradition on campus. Around 90 students gathered to jump into the pool, they all received a free t-shirt and hot chocolate to drink at the end.
