  1. The theatre used to be the library, the current library was used as a medical ward for some flu epidemic that hit campus in the early days. Many of the pupils died, and the main priest in charge, struck with grief, committed suicide in the old library/current theater. Those who perform and work in the theatre and music depts call the ghost ‘Randy’.
