#MirrorLakeMonday: Sights and Sounds from Ohio State Students' Latest Tradition

By D.J. Byrnes on November 25, 2014 at 7:00 am

Last year, in the lead up to the Mirror Lake Jump, Ohio State attempted to regulate the student tradition by fencing off the area and requiring a wristband to participate. In a show of civil disobedience, the legendary Chilliam Wallace led a band of students through the fences and into Mirror Lake 24 hours before the scheduled jump.

It was forever etched into Ohio State lore as "Mirror Lake Monday." 

Fast forward to November 24th, 2014. Ohio State again announced it would attempt to regulate the Mirror Lake Jump, and just like 2013, students (and likely, university non-affiliates) defied authority, breached the fences, and jumped into Mirror Lake 24 hours before scheduled.

And while this is cool as all get out, it must be said: Hats off to Ohio State police for keeping it chill. That said, props to Ohio State students.
