  1. Hi so I lived in Butz Hall on campus and I swear when I woke up one morning when my roommate wasnt in the room I saw a the reflection of a little girl with dark hair in a short bob with fron bangs standing staring but with only faint markings in her skin of where her eyes and mouth should be in the reflection of my tv. Perhaps it could be Wanda. I also have another story from another building.
