  1. I attend Hanover College and it has also been said that a student committed suicide on the bell of the Parker auditorium, meaning when he hung himself, the bell rang for all of campus to hear.

  2. I currently attend Hanover College and live in Dinner Ball. At the beginning of the year several of the residence would hear a single knock on the door at night. Sometimes we would hear running but we can hear the bathroom and stairwell doors along with the rest of the form room doors open and close. When we checked, all doors were closed and there was nobody anywhere. They were all asleep or in their rooms.

  3. I lived on Donner, 3rd floor. There is a door to a room along the back side of the building, closer to the attached Ide dorm that locks on its own. My friend lived there and would constantly get locked out after going to the bathroom.
