Sun Journal creates splash with Puddle Jump video

Sun Journal photographer and videographer Daryn Slover stops by the 2011 Puddle Jump to produce a video and slide show of the Jan. 21 event.


The distinctive Bates student tradition (in 2010 the Puddle Jump was noted by the Vietnam news portal Zing) was founded in 1975 and for years was held on St. Patrick’s Day. It is now part of activities during Winter Carnival, held in January, sponsored by the Bates Outing Club.
