There have been numerous tragedies that have occurred on the main campus which are reportedly the reason for the accounts of spiritual activities. There's the student who hung himself in the bell tower, the elderly woman who fell down the stairs and killed herself in the Alumni House, and her husband who hung himself after her death in the building. Then there's also the baby who died of pneumonia in the back office and the area where it occurred staying permanently cold all the time. Those who have witnessed haunting activity report seeing the spirit of the individuals, red eyes appearing from the garden shed, and unexplainable sounds of footsteps. Then there's also the incidences in the chapel where the organ may play itself.

    Of course it's haunted. It's so old! But, no, really. The main thing that haunted the original building are the WASPS. Omg they flying everywhere. I complained and they killed them, but did kill the eggs or remove the nest! So they just come back. The art building gets so cold you can see breath ghosts. Now the pneumonia! I had it for an entire semester. I swear there wasn't a day I wasn't sick and hacking out my lungs. I was a fine arts major, so spent most my time in those old, unventilated, moldy rooms. Omg maybe I'm the pneumonia ghost!! My the cemetery.....naw, not haunted, either. It was some hazing thing, I think.

    Lived on campus for a year and went to school here, never saw anything. Whats funny is I heard the same stories about pianos and organs playing themselves, anytime I checked it was just a music major practicing at 3 a.m. for a performance. Never had any encounter supernatural.
