A May Day tradition of St Andrews University has gone global with students in lockdown.
The May Dip normally sees hundreds of students take a bracing daybreak dunk in the North Sea at a St Andrews beach.
But with students at home around the world unable to return to the Fife institution due to coronavirus restrictions, the early-morning custom has gone online.
In Soaking for St Andrews students are uploading videos of themselves getting drenched, whether fully clothed in the shower, being hosed in the garden or jumping into their pool.
Footage is being uploaded on social media, with the hashtag #soak4StA.
The challenge, organised by the Fellowship of St Andrews group, is also raising money to help students who remain in St Andrews during the Covid-19 crisis.
Donations made by participants will go to the University Community Fund.
The May Dip, which would have begun today around 5.30am, is said to bring exam luck and wash away any academic sins.
First fellow Charlotte Jiang said: “This year, in light of the remotely-taught semester, the Fellowship of St Andrews seeks to virtually unite our students together through our event, Soaking for St Andrews.
“We are very much excited to spread the May Dip spirit to our students who are at home across the globe, whilst furthering our social enterprise’s mission of fundraising for, serving and appreciating our town.”
