Mirror Lake has water again but student can forget about jump rebirth

Ohio State University’s Mirror Lake is once again filled with water but officials have taken measures to ensure students can’t reinstate the traditional pre-Michigan game jump.

The lake isn’t nearly as deep as it was before and it’s capable of being completely drained within an hour.

Ohio State and the student government agreed to ban the Mirror Lake Jump after a student died from a broken neck in November 2015.


The $8.5 million restoration of Mirror Lake began back in late 2016, reports Columbus Business First.

Once the project is complete (August projection), the area will be equipped with more seating options, terraces, landscaping, and better Wi-Fi access.

What do you think about the changes to Mirror Lake?
