Capital University’s Kerns Religious Life Center is said to have a haunted basement. Folks down there have felt unexplained sadness and trouble breathing, and lights are said to come on by themselves. The Science Building may also have a ghost–the spirit of a former biology professor. The sixty-something man’s apparition seen here wears a white lab coat and carries a beaker and an apothecary bottle. He has been seen putting away science equipment in the labs after students finish using it. Other strange things attributed to the ghost are microscopes that are flung across rooms and lab animals that are released from their cages.
