According to some reports, a soldier named Augie is said to haunt the building. It is said that he passed away there when the hall was used as the infirmary. Students have reported cold spots, strange sounds, and moving objects. Other reports say that the place was never an infirmary but was a WAVES’ dorm, only for women.

  1. Lived in Lawther from 1989-1991. We had the television going haywire and the alarm clock refused to go off (my father was a radio tech – never found a thing wrong with either. Test always indicated it working fine). My roommate’s dormer closet light would always be on by morning, even after numerous attempts to tape the switch down. It seemed to take much pleasure locking us out of our dorms when we’d leave for a shower, without our keys. Maintenance threatened to fine us. We’ve had posters inverted on the walls, and shadows dart around the room.
