This college has seen its share of tragedy, and the spiritual activity reported here can attest to that. On the main campus, it is said that a distraught student once hung himself in the bell tower, and his ghost has been seen on the upper floors. In the Alumni House, an elderly woman was killed when she fell down the stairs, and her husband hung himself in the building shortly thereafter. It is also said that a baby died of pneumonia here, and the back office, which used to be the nursery, permanently stays very cold. Footsteps can be heard throughout the lower floors, and red eyes are said to appear and watch visitors from the gardening shed. In Carnegie, 3 ghosts are said to reside. TVs have been known to come on or change channels. Eerie feelings and suddenly being grabbed have been reported. In the chapel, the organ is said to play by itself, and footsteps can be heard running down the middle of the sanctuary, although there is no center aisle.
