  1. At the University of Rhode Island. You need to check out Edwards Auditorium the backstage area freaks me out. I have been an employer at the University of Rhode Island for the past 26 years! The spiral staircase in the backstage area freaks me out. The reason is it always sounds like there is glass breaking more like light bulbs breaking?? And cannot find any broken glass whatsoever! You need to go in there early morning hours or late at night 10 PM to 2AM! As well as other buildings on the University campus! If you need to contact me my email is

    I was a student here during the summer of 2010 for Talent Development and used to have a night class in White Hall like around 8pm ( i forgot the time, but it was after 7pm) anyways we had to arrive early and got sometime to chill out so i took a mini tour of the place. I noticed these 3 empty classrooms that had nothing in them no boards, desk nothing. In fact everything was hidden in a closet. Upon entering, the areas were completely dark and when walking around you could definitely feel a strange energy in those rooms. Like something or someone did not want me in there. It felt very dark as I continued touring these abandoned classrooms, the pressure continued to elevate and despite it being a hot summer’s night the rooms were cold as if something was definitely in there with me. It’s a shame I didn’t have my phone on me I would’ve been down to do some EVP’s and see what happened! Give a chance, I’d like to team up with some people to investigate.
