"So that 'pretty snow' earlier this week actually turned into rain," St. Olaf writes on its Facebook page. "Quite a bit of it, in fact, leaving first-year students Michael Mayer, Brian Craig, and David Brendan Johnson no choice but to take the plunge."

So far, the photo has nabbed hundreds of likes and dozens of shares. "Only in MN!" one woman commented.
