No Jump Zone: OSU Drains Mirror Lake

Ahead of the Ohio State v. Michigan Game, the university has once again taken precautionary measures against the age-old tradition that claimed a student’s life in 2015.

Mirror Lake has been temporarily drained to avoid any temptations students may have to reinstate Mirror Lake Jump.

The Ohio State student government came to an agreement to ban the Mirror Lake Jump after a student died from a broken neck in November 2015.

Shortly after the decision, OSU announced their plans to renovate the lake.

The updates, which were completed earlier this year, included going from a cement-bottom body water to a more natural, sustainable, and shallow pond.

I got f*cked by a handful of professors this semester. Not literally, just metaphorically. Finals suck.
