And at Belks Hall, the ghost of a little girl who fell down the stairs while riding a tricycle laughs or screams, and a student who committed suicide also is rumored to show up here. A piano-playing ghost haunts the Music Hall, and at Mixon Hall, a student who hanged himself on the stairs haunts the second floor.

  1. I am a recent graduate of Chowan University and it is safe to say I have had an encounter every year I was there. First was Belk hall the third floor, my roommate and I experienced cold chills and random noises in the hall in the early morning hours. The weirdest moment, we were both sitting in our beds watching tv when we watch the clothes in our closets move….. physically move. The next two years I lived in Mixon Hall, and they were the most frightening experiences yet. I lived on the second floor with a different roommate, and while we were at our desks doing work the books fell off the windowsill. They were stacked atleast an inch from the edge of the sill and they just fell right off. The next year, with the same roommate we both got back from the cafe and a beats headphone pouch thing flew at us. My roommate kept it above her closet behind some totes that she kept dishes and things in. So logically there was no way it would have fallen out, yet alone end up across the room. The final experience, was in Whites Crossing… I was asleep in my bed, it was no where near the window either so I cant blame the wind. My roommate was off campus that weekend but I still woke up at 3 am… to breathing mere inches from my face. Heavy breathing. No thanks. I went and slept on a friends floor until my roommate came back
