University students have decided to celebrate the May Day differently by stripping totally n*ked and jumping into the freezing water to cleanse them of their academic sins.
University students have decided the celebrate May Day on a more significant note by stripping n*ked and dipping into the ocean. The May Day swim is an annual tradition dozens take part in, which is said to bring good luck before their end-of-year exams.
According to Dailystar while monitoring the event, not everyone was brave enough to go totally starkers, with many keeping their briefs and bras firmly on.
According to the tradition, the students have to stay awake the whole night before running n*ked at dawn into the sea while the University Madrigal Group performs a song.
The icy water is said to cleanse them of their academic sins.
Another wacky water-themed tradition the university has comes after their finals which sees students soak each other with cold water for an invigorating way to celebrate the final exam.
