Mirror Lake at Ohio State University has a couple of ghosts. One is a student who drowned there in the 1960s, and is sometimes heard splashing and screaming. The other is a jogger who was killed nearby. The jogger apparition creates a cold breeze as he runs and keeps peering backward over his shoulder.
