Graduating nurses take the plunge


It’s an annual tradition — graduating seniors in the College of Nursing line up at the pool in Student Center West, count down, then jump in together, wearing their student nurse uniforms.

The pool jump has been a rite of passage for at least 35 years, and this year’s May 4 event for the 89 members of the Class of 2015 was no exception.
