When Daniel Toth was living on campus, he would report at 5:30 a.m. for a fitness regimen followed by a naval science class — all before starting his days as a student at Rutgers University. The Navy ROTC midshipman’s favorite workout has been the "strip swim." Dressed in uniform and boots, he and his colleagues would jump into a pool, then take off an article of clothing every 250 meters they swam. “You don’t see the swim team doing that!” he said.
