Happy, Chilly New Year: Splash and Dash in Pictures

Running into the lake

The run, the plunge, the shivers, the laughs: It's a tradition for Bastyrians to mark the first day of the winter quarter with a dash down the trail to Lake Washington and a dip into the chilly water.

Twenty-some swimmers and a gaggle of supporters gathered at the campus pillars at noon Jan. 2 for the 14th annual ritual. It's a way to celebrate the start of good things to come, catch up with friends after the holiday break and give one's immune system a jolt. "You get warm on the run down the hill, experience the ultimate cool down and then warm back up as you hike your way back to campus," says Rebecca Love Steward, DVM, a faculty member in the Department of Basic Sciences and Splash and Dash ringleader.
