  1. I stayed in Harris Hall on the 1st floor in 2001-2002. On several occasions while taking a nap between classes I’d feel the bed move as if someone had just plopped down at the foot of my bed. I’d sit up only to find no one there. It was very creepy and would happen during the day. I mentioned it to my room mate and she also would have the same experiences all though it never happened while we would be in the room together. It always occurred when I would be alone in the room and the same for her. The girls next door to us had strange occurances and one moved out because she was frightened. Her roommate that was left in the room often would come to our room in the middle of the night and sleep on the floor because of the activity in her room.

  2. I lived in Harris Hall from 1997-1998. I really didn’t want to live there but I decided to move as a favor to my roommate. She wanted to live there because the rooms were larger and nicer. I believe Lilly visited me a few times. Every night at about 2 am my roommate and I heard what sounded like furniture moving above us. We lived on the top floor so this would have been noise from the attic. Another time a group of friends and I were talking about Lilly and all of a sudden a cold breeze came and our hair started moving. There was no ac vent or doors open around us that could have explained the reason for this. We were all scared, so we stopped talking about her and immediately the cold breeze went away. Another time, I was walking up the stairs to go to my room and I heard footsteps behind me but no one was there. One night I awoke to find a bright light flashing in my eyes but I was so scared, I put the blanket over my head and forced myself back to sleep. Many of the residents I had spoken to had their own experiences but everyone said she was a friendly ghost so I tried to remind myself of this and not be too afraid. However, as soon as I was able to, I moved out of the dorm into a much quite one.
