A rubber duck with a cotton ball glued to the top of its head sits on the edge of Mirror Lake during the Afroduck Remembrance Ceremony on Monday night. A few hundred students gathered for a final memorial for Afroduck, the icon that died Friday. The ceremony was organized through Facebook. Kelly Ahearne, a first-year in forestry, fisheries and wildlife, said she felt compelled to honor the campus’ fallen iconic waterfowl one last time. “He’s a presence on campus, and we all kind of love him,” she said. (“My friends and I) like to joke around that Brutus is our real mascot, but Afroduck is our secondary one.”
