The Cold Knight Plunge is back!

What it is

Every year, brave Calvin students gather to participate in the tradition of jumping into the Seminary Pond in the middle of winter. They earn a towel for each year that they jump including a golden towel their senior year if they have jumped every year before that.

Who can come

All are welcome to come watch this event! Only students can participate.


Registration begins at 4:00 PM in the Devos Communication Center. Following registration head over to the Sem Pond where the jump will begin at 5:00pm.

To speed up the registration process and to skip the long lines please fill out this registration form ahead of time (you must be logged into your Calvin Gmail account to access the form). If you fill out the form ahead of time you will be able to simply come to registration the day of the jump and be marked to participate at that time.
