  1. I graduated AMC in 2000. I was told the name of the ghost in Zecco is Theresa. She was shot by someone and when a performance requires a prop gun that gun will never work in the theater but will work outdoors. There were stories all over campus from the pregnant nun that killed herself in the dorms to the workers that got killed in a cavein while making the tunnel from the dorms to the music building. I must say that the basement in the music building is pretty creepy and there is evidence of the unfinished tunnel.

      Hello question for you
      do you know which dorm the nun had committed suicide in? I am attending Anna Maria College currently as a freshman student at this time I am looking for answers to my own Paranormal experiences here

  2. I am a current student at AMC. They stories are true. There is a statue in Zecco that cannot moved or defaced. This is because Theresa has a connection to this statue. 2 years ago, they statue was moved before a musical. The sound, and lights did not work opening night, and that same night, a girl passed out on stage.

  3. I graduated from this school in 1991 and I NEVER heard this! I was a music major and it wouldn’t surprise – might explain why I was creeped out to be alone in the music building practicing. Interesting.

  4. I was in the Info Commons late at night around 4 a.m. writing a paper and it was just my roommate and I in there. Everything was quiet and we suddenly hear noises upstairs. Now nobody else was there and all the janitors had left we were really scared and ran out the building.

    I was in Zecco theater the other night because some of the stories that I have heard intrigued me. I left my phone on voice record in between the last row of seats and the wall at the back of the room. Before I had left I said I am going to be right back I had got to go type a paper and I will be right back. When I returned from typing I picked up my phone and got bad vibes. I got back to my dorm and played the recording. I heard seats moving then shortly after I heard a voice which sounded to be in Latin. I will go back at some point to try to find so answers to the more questions that I have got after that night.

  6. I actually attended Anna Maria college a few years back. I had to type a paper in the info commons late at night so I left my phone in Zecco theater in the back. I wish I never went back to get my phone I caught an EVP on it I never again wish to hear that EVP

    Hi I am a current student of Anna-Maria and I have seen the nun myself she had committed suicide 2 doors down from my room and has the habit of walking the halls. There is also a little girl who knocks on door late at night. And there is also a baby’s foot print on the ceiling
