Brua Hall, The theater on campus, Brua Hall, is said to be haunted by a civil war era man. He frequently visits the theater at night and has been seen backstage and on the catwalk of the theater. He likes to play practical jokes and move props and costumes around. The man has a favorite seat in the house and sometimes he has been seen watching the students practice for an upcoming show. This seat is left empty for every performance in case he wants to come and watch.
Glatfelter Hall, The bell tower on Glatfelter Hall is haunted by the spirit of a girl that committed suicide by jumping from the tower. Male faculty members and students have seen her at the top of the tower late at night. The story is that her lover was supposed to jump with her, but after she jumped he changed his mind. So, late at night she tries to lure the men walking by up to the top, hoping they will jump to their death and join her.
Pennsylvania Hall, The Administrative offices on the campus are housed in a large, white building (Penn Hall) that was a hospital during the civil war. Several faculty members and students have seen a very graphic and horrible civil war hospital scene when the elevator in the building mysteriously goes out of control and takes the passengers to the basement. When the doors open, they are faced with the ghostly scene instead of the usual storage facility that is in the basement. The cupola on top of the building is also said to be haunted. Several students and faculty walking across campus late at night have seen a civil war soldier standing guard on top of the cupola. In several instances the soldier will spot the person and take aim with his rifle.
Stevens Hall, Haunted by the "The Blue Boy." About a hundred years ago, a young boy who was being abused at home sought refuge amongst the college women who lived here. One cold, snowy night, the headmistress came up to check on the girls so they hurriedly hid the boy outside on their window ledge. The headmistress took her time talking to the young women, but finally she went back to her room. The girls rushed to the window ledge only to find the boy was not there anymore! They went down & outside to see if he had fell, but there was no boy. To this day, sightings of a young boy, blue in the face as if frozen, are common among Stevens Hall residents.
Sigma Nu Fraternity House, This house was previously owned by the only doctor in the county through the depression era. He died in the house. There have been numerous incidents of lights going on and off, with nobody visable at the switches. Large, very heavy oak doors have slammed open and shut, followed by lights completely dimming out. The lights have dimmed out in the bedroom where the doctor died, while the lights in the hallway have stayed lit, and they`re both on the same circuit. Sounds of things being thrown around in the basement in the dark, but the noise stops when the lights are turned on, and nothing is out of place. Once during a storm over a break, one of two people in the house heard the front door slam open, they went downstairs, closed the door, only to turn around and see wet footsteps on the carpet. Noises of walking upstairs were then heard. The person raced upstairs to find more wet footprints. The person chased the noised and footprints through the house. As the person chased the noised through the only hallway on the 3rd floor, when the other person was studying in the hallway, the studying person said that nobody had passed by, yet they both then heard the noises going down the stairs. They then heard the front door slam open again, and the footprints had exited the house. Another person was closing one of the heavy doors late one night when in mid swing, the door suddenly stopped dead, as if it had hit a solid obstacle. There was no obstruction, and the door could not have caught on anything. They swung the door again, and it then swung freely.
Theta Chi Fraternity House, The story goes that a previous owner had hung themselves in the basement. The rumor is that if you see the ghost of the person hanging, something bad will happen to you or a member of your family. There are stories of people seeing the ghost, and the next day relatives were killed in a car accident – this has not been proven true.
