  1. My freshman year of college, I lived in the BASEMENT of this dormitory. Most of it was under construction, so there were only two finished rooms with a combined total of three girls, who all shared one bathroom. The remainder of the basement was a common area with a pool table, TV, and stuff of the sort. When we were in the shower, another shower would turn on, when we were brushing our teeth, toilets would flush. There would be crazy noises coming from the part that was under construction. There would be noises coming from the pool table that would wake us at night. We always went to check…and nothing.

    I attended Peru and stayed in Morgan in 2010. I also had encounters with weird things happening while I stayed there. One night I was going to the bathroom when the door, which swung outwards, came swinging at me inwards like someone kicked it in at me. When I ran out of the bathroom, freaking out, the microwave in the hallway was going but there was no time on it, so it should not have been on. Some night we herd weird noises downstairs while we were dying each others hair, but no one else was down there.

  3. When I worked as an electrician at Morgan Hall on a state college campus in the mid-2000’s, my work days were Sunday through Thursday.
    One summer we were upgrading rooms in the women’s dormitory, Eliza Morgan Hall.
    I was working upstairs installing new wiring and fixtures, and heard noises downstairs.
    When I worked in building on weekends, I always made sure the entry doors were locked.
    At any rate, I heard these noises and went downstairs to investigate. Perhaps there wa a weekend tour that I didn’t know about.
    Finding nothing, I went back upstairs to work.
    The noised sounded again like people talking.
    Investigating again I again found nothing.
    The last time I heard noises, it sounded like furniture being moved around.
    I went to the main lobby and nothing was there.
    In a “receiving room” there was a picture of Ms. Morgan on the wall. I stood in front of it and said something to the effect of that I wasn’t there to hurt the girls, but was trying to make the rooms nicer for them, and that I hoped this was okay.
    I went back upstairs and never heard the noises again.
