This university is rumored to have quite a few ghost stories attached to it. One tells the tale of a young boy ghost that wears a blue t-shirt and shorts while wandering around campus before vanishing. Reports say that Benedictine Hall had to be closed because it was so haunted. A clergyman was said to be the ghost that haunted the 4th floor, and in the art wing, some have reported hearing voices. There was also a rumor that on the 5th floor, an exorcism took place after a student became possessed when he and a group of friends used a Ouija board in the cemetery. Ghostly children are believed to haunt Jaeger Hall and some residents have reported hearing their stereos turn on in the middle of the night. A little girl and boy ghost is said to linger Neuzil Hall. The two were captured on film and were visible after the photos were developed. One room inside Ondrak Hall is closed due to its hauntings as well. Another eerie occurrence here - TV's have been known to change volume for no reason at all.

When your roommate's friend wakes up in the middle of the night and starts to dance in a circle singing Ring Around the Rosie while holding hands with 2 small children you know something's up. We'd wake up to our door randomly wide open in the middle of the night. Or come home and the heat would be turned to full blast on a 90 degree day. Ondrak hall. I think it was room 223.
There was also a murder there in the 70s. Her body was left on one of the outdoor alters, near the lake.Posted 10/18/18
I was a former student there at BenU. Yes, the boy in a blue shirt and shorts is a real thing that only happens on the 3rd floor and outside of the freshman girls dorm. A girl drowned in the kidney shaped lake back when the campus was a orphanage. last, but not least the business building (Goodwin Hall) in the middle of the quad burned down and the employees said it was the most haunted building on campus. But if you really want a good haunt, go to the cemetery next to the lake and take pictures, there will be nothing but orbs and shadows in the picture.
My experiences was pretty weird. I had my lights turned on while I was in bed watching netflix. There were strange knocks at my door around 4 in the morning. Tried to play with the little blue boy ghost and it worked. My tv and xbox would randomly turn off while watching netflix or playing video games.Posted 7/25/17
