Mirror Lake drained – what was in it?

Ok I thought I would add this as an additional post instead of having a really long one but I thought it was necessary.  The Mirror Lake jump is actually rather gross and Imagine it filled with duck poo. On more than one occasion students have gotten hypothermia and been hospitalized.  Also, many students also lose a lot of belongings during the jump every year.

Last year, they drained Mirror Lake and cleaned it out (so the Mirror Lake jump, the final one for my senior year and the last one on Thursday, was pretty clean).  This is part of an email I received last year from my former supervisor – it’s a list of the things that were found when the lake was drained.
