Hamline University has a few haunted halls, say the students. One building said to see the most ghostly activity is the Manor Hall, where apparitions, moving objects and strange noises abound. The third floor is the most active. Old Main and Drew Hall are no slouches either, as far as hauntings go. At Old Main, a floating apparition with a noose round its neck has been seen. In addition, the portraits are said to have moving eyes. And at Drew Hall, there’s a story about a freshman who was messing with the elevator doors and got his hand cut off. Although the student lived, his hand was never found, and the students say it creeps around the hall looking for the rest of its body.

  1. I lived in drew hall my freshman year of college. Strange things were often happening like lights turning off, the door nob shaking, and things falling off my desk. The creepiest thing was my roommate woke up many times with full hand prints on her back. This happened to be once.

  2. I lived in Drew Hall for 3 years. Nothing ever felt eerie to me, and nothing ever happened to me. Manor is a different story. When you walk into that building, it just feels wrong and eerie.
