Freaky Friday is back just in time for one of the most notoriously spooky days of the year – Friday the 13th. As a student at Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, I thought this was the perfect time to share some scary stories from my school.
Moravian has been around since the 1700s; in fact, it is the 6th oldest college in the country! It started out as an all girls seminary and is n [...]
We searched high and low - and at the end of a rainbow - but much like a leprechaun's elusive pot of gold, we could not find any Saint Patrick's Day themed ghost stories to bring you this week. We did, however, find some very chilling stories on the campus of Shawnee State University. Keep reading to see what spine-tingling tales this Ohio university has for us this week!
Cold spots, mysterious [...]
Our reader Ella told us to explore the ghost stories at Washington College and we are sure glad she did! One of the oldest colleges in the country, Washington College seems to also be one of the most haunted campuses we have come across yet. Keep reading if you think you can handle all of the ghostly tales we uncovered!
The creaks and groans of Middle Hall are expected considerin [...]
We found this week's story & we are dying (pun intended) to get more information about the ghost in the Milner Library at Illinois State University. The library was named for Angeline Milner, an adored librarian whom students often referred to affectionately as "Aunt Ange." She took up her position at the school in February of 1890 and was instantly recognized for her passion and dedication to [...]
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-i [...]
There is a group at the University of Tennessee at Martin that certainly believes in the presence of the paranormal in their midst. They call themselves the Paranormal Research & Investigation Society of Martin, PRISM Paranormal for short, and with a Facebook page boasting over 4,000 fans, it is clear they have made a name for themselves on campus.
This past fall, the group hosted events ar [...]
Having grown up in New Jersey a mere 20 minutes from where the New York Giants play, it is safe to say that I have Super Bowl fever. As I count down the hours until game time, I realized this was the perfect opportunity to explore the ghosts of my beloved quarterback, Eli Manning’s, alma mater. Without further ado, I bring you the tales of ghosts at Ole Miss.
The University of M [...]
This week's hunt for ghosts at Boston University has left me convinced I must be missing out on the real hair-raising campus stories. Given the city of Boston's rich history and ties to the Revolutionary War, my expectations were sky-high for some truly spine-tingling tales to share with you. What I found, instead, has me convinced that further investigation is necessary. Take a look at this video [...]
A quick Google search for ghosts at Saint Louis University brings up more than 2 million results...literally. Luckily for me, a dedicated Facebook group created by students of SLU was among the first few links I researched, and here I found all of the information I needed for this week's Freaky Friday post.
It became clear from browsing the posts that the Saint Louis University Paranormal Inves [...]
As someone who ‘misplaces’ things often (No, Mom, I didn’t lose my phone, I just can’t find it right now!), I found the ghost in this story from Temple University to be extremely helpful. Whether there is truth behind this tale or not, I will be heading into the New Year hoping to encounter a ghost like this one!
During the early days of Temple University, founder Russ [...]
