  1. I lived in Best Dorm the season of 1980-81. While I lay awake trying to fall asleep one night, a glass ashtray of sort burst in to two pieces, but never fell off my bedside table. Scared to death, I did not move until the following morning. And there it was the next morning. Two pieces, perfectly broken in half on my nightstand. I lived in a single so I don’t have a witness. But why would I make this up? I know there are ghosts on that campus. I didn’t live in fear, somehow I felt they were really not going to hurt anyone. I did feel their presence on occasion.
