COLD FOR A CAUSE: Incoming freshmen (from left) Natalya Stefanovich, Victoria Good, Caitlyn Spetzer, Crystal Cosgrove and Nicole Dunn at Mount Aloysius College in Pennsylvania take the ALS ice bucket challenge. Even politicians and celebrities are getting in on the act with everyone from former President George W.
