Glendon College, a bilingual liberal arts college with about 3,000 students, lies on what was once the 1900s estate of well-known financier Edward Rogers Wood. Its spirits include a little girl who materializes near a willow tree (she may have fallen to her death from this tree), a little boy seen near the campus fountain, and an angry energy that may shove visitors at the gazebo near the ravine, believed to have died in or near the water. A young female suicide victim appears peering out first-floor and basement windows of the library, or surprises visitors by appearing in their photographs.

I went to school here for 5 years. The fountain is near the gazeebo and I have seen a young boy around both, almost like he is chasing a toy or pet. He wears a white sailor-esque outfit with hat. There was a rumor that the Woods had a son who had a difference and made him unfit to be seen by visitors (I have heard polio, down syndrome and autism-like symptoms) and so would lock him away while they entertained Toronto’s elite.
Students who reside in Wood residence also report waking up with scratches and/or pen marks on them in a certain room. The second floor D bathrooms in Wood (where I spent my first year) would have faucets and showers turn on on their own, and eventually off again.
The female suicide victim is thought to have hung herself in the main hall of the manor (used today as offices and classrooms) after learning she was pregnant by her employer.
None of the paranormal energies are malicious or angry, but are simply there.
