Ceres Hall is believed to be haunted by a man who hanged himself from a heating pipe during World War II. The basement and the third floor are both believed to be haunted, perhaps by two different entities. And Minard Hall, once rumored to be the site of a possible double murder, witnesses describe a strange feeling of an unseen presence around them.

  1. When I was attending college there in 2010, my friend and I were walking back to our Burgum Dorm for the night. We have to walk past Ceres Hall to get there. We both saw a man’s pale white face in the third floor, but when we blinked, it was gone.

  2. I used to be the custodian at Ceres and it is haunted!!! I would always hear the same noise at the same time coming from the study room at the very top and i was cleaning the floor below its bathroom. I also had a really bad feeling down in the basement, where the washers are to the right is a feeling of being watched! I kept the elevator door opened up because it was between 3-4 am when i would come in…
