There are three popular spots with the haunts at St. Edward’s University, according to student lore. One is Doyle Hall where a ghostly nun turns on the showers. Another is Mary Moody Northern Theatre, where the ghost of a young man who hanged himself using the sandbag ropes spooks witnesses. The apparition of his body has been seen and heard creaking and swinging on the ropes, even if the ropes themselves can’t be seen. And at Premont Hall walks the ghost of a former Resident Advisor who died after slipping in the showers–his body wasn’t found for a week. The ghost makes itself known by slamming windows and doors and by turning on all the shower faucets at the same time.

  1. I know a teacher who had a little trouble with an unknown entity. Late at night in a common area of one building a television kept coming on by itself. Not hard to imagine since a remote could fire it up, but the entire building, all three floors were vacant at the time according to the teacher. After turning it off for the second time he unplugged the tv and went back to grading papers. It came on again. Frightened, he packed up and left without examining the television. It really happened, but someone could have been hiding somewhere pranking the teacher.

    • Do you know where that happened? My Tv has been turning on every morning between 3-6. I usually sleep through it and by the time I wake up between 7-9 it’s off again. I live in the apartments and havn’t tried unplugging it yet but it’s begining to freak me out a little.
