USF Students Take Plunge For Burn Survivors

In the bitter cold of winter, the University of Saint Francis Student Nursing Association is inviting the community to join them for a polar plunge. The 3rd Annual Cougar Chill will take place on Thursday, February 18 at 4 p.m. at Mirror Lake on the USF main campus, 2701 Spring Street.

The Cougar Chill originated to honor a USF nursing student who is also a burn survivor, and the frigid swim has become a popular winter event on campus. USF students, faculty and staff participate in the event, and the community is also invited to join the chilly dip.
