Michigan State University reportedly has an abundance of haunted sites, including the University Garden, the Physical Plant, Williams Hall, and Mayo Hall, where the ghost of namesake May Mayo plays a piano and the Red Room is rumored to have been the setting for past Satanist rituals. Also said to be haunted are Holmes Hall, where a ghost is believed to tinker with the elevator, and Fairchild Auditorium, where a small ghost boy is said to reside. Hubbard Hall has lights that go on and off along with running footsteps and spooky laughter, and Mason Hall’s basement sports the ghost of an elderly man. Rumor has it that he suffocated here in 1975.

    I lived in Cedar Village apartments on the campus of MSU during the ’95-’96 school year. There were (4) sightings within our apartment of a woman with short dark hair wearing a long white gown. She was always seen as smiling and happy. 2 sightings in the far bedroom, 1 sighting traveling down the hall to the bedroom and 1 sighting from the outside looking into the apartment in the living room window. I have wondered if anyone else had a similar experience? We were in the first building on your right if traveling down Bogue street toward Grand River. 1st floor/1st apartment – garden level looking out to the ramp to the parking deck – may have been apt 126?
