  1. I am a student at wells, I was on the second floor using the bathroom. I was alone in there no one else. The water turned on by itself and I heard someone cough. After I was done I came out to wash my hands and the water is still running, I turned it off and went to the other sink and the water turned back on again!!! I ran out the bathroom and went to another bathroom to wash my hands! wells is for sure haunted!!
