Northern Michigan University has quite a few buildings that are rumored to have things that go bump in the night. For instance, in Room 102, the control room of the John X. Jamrich Building, a young woman’s face is said to appear in the window. She’s believed to be the ghost of a former nursing student. And in Room 304 of Halverson Hall, the ghost of a student who committed suicide has been seen. The haunt in the Music Building, or, some say the Forrest Roberts Theatre, is a former janitor named Perry who died from a heart attack in the 1960s. Perry is thought to haunt the Thomas Fine Arts Building as well.
