At Southeastern Oklahoma State University’s Morrison Building, the apparition of a little boy has been seen walking around the basement. Apparently there used to be a pool here, and the little boy drowned in it. It is also said that a janitor died here under mysterious circumstances. And at the Shear Hall dormitory, a ghost is said to reside on the 3rd floor, which is kept locked. Rumor has it that a student shot several people and then committed suicide there, and now residents hear things sliding across the floor and unexplained footsteps.

  1. Been a masters degree student and have every class for the past 3 years in the basement here, never once have seen a ‘boy’ or heard stories from anyone else in the department.

  2. It was a little girl not a little boy. It was a professors 10 year old daughter. Also in that building is George. The campuses only named ghost and most famous! As for the Shear Hall, the original shear hall was torn down and a new shear hall stands in its place.

    I go to school here, plus they give an annual ghost tour!
