Freaky Friday: Rowan University

Unexplained creaks & thumps, flickering lights and a bathroom door that opens on its own are all signs that point toward the work of the supernatural. Students at Rowan University have more than one ghostly figure to blame for any odd occurrences in Bunce Hall. If an article on the university’s website is accurate, they may have as many as six! Fear not, though – those who have had a run-in with one of the many spirits that inhabits the building say they mean no harm…for the most part.

Perhaps the most well-known of the ghosts, one spirit is believed to be that of Elizabeth Tohill, the university’s first drama teacher. Bunce Hall houses the Tohill Auditorium, named for the teacher who seemingly never left. Affectionately referred to as Liz by students, there are claims that she has dropped in on rehearsals and performances in the auditorium, even being daring enough to take part in a chorus line!

The paranormal investigation group South Jersey Ghost Research was brought into the building in 2007 to find out if ghosts indeed were to blame for the mysterious chills and noises often experienced in Bunce. Using infrared motion sensors, voice recorders and other equipment, they found ghostly activity all over the auditorium – I have chills just thinking about it!

I am definitely convinced that these ghosts are real, but am I alone? Do you know more about the ghosts at Rowan University? Share your stories with us in the comments below!
