Daily Iowan Rocks Out Ice Bucket Challenge, Nominates Other Student Papers to Dive In

The Daily Iowan crew gamely got cold and wet earlier today, recording a fun ALS Ice Bucket Challenge video that includes shrieks, a brief water balloon fight and a call-to-arms for other college media outlets to join in the fun.

According to DI editor-in-chief extraordinaire Jordyn Reiland, the staff at the University of Iowa student newspaper stepped up to a challenge issued by their cross-state college media rival The Iowa State Daily. And in turn, on camera, the Daily Iowan has now nominated the staffs of other ACP Pacemaker winnersThe Harvard Crimson, Indiana Daily Student, The Daily Collegian and The Daily Tar Heel — to take part in the icy awesomeness.

Here’s the DI’s challenge video. Beneath that are the challenge videos spotlighting Iowa State Daily EIC Stephen Koenigsfeld and ME Maddy Arnold.

P.S. If any other college media have plunged to similarly icy depths, comment on this post or shoot me an email with the video links!
