Our Lady of the Lake University

Long dead nuns continue to roam the campus as well as the mischievous ghost that alums have taken to calling Jack. Jack is blamed for every prank and missing item in the dorms (which probably tickles live pranksters to no end).

    1. I attended OLLU and my experience was in the old library. At the time, the old library still had a card index to look up library books. I was using the card index and there were other drawers of the card file that had been left open. On one of the drawers next to me the cards started ruffling by themselves. I looked around and no one was near me, There were students but they were at the library desk in another room. I also checked to see if it could have been a draft that ruffled the cards but I couldn’t find one. The ruffling of the index cards happened to me on 2 separate occasions. Once by myself and another time when there was another student that witnessed the cards ruffling by themselves. .

      Also, just being in the bottom of the basement of the old library gave me chills down my back. On several occasions I had to go down to the basement to use a copier. The copier was located at the entrance of the floor but it just had an eerie feel to the place. As students we would look out for each other or even ask students we didn’t know just to keep us company while we made our copies. Believe it or not…you just had to be there.

      • I attended OLLU back in the late 80’s/early 90’s, and I do remember the old library which is now I believe the financial aid office. Everything you mentioned is spot on. On a couple of occasions, I witnessed a book falling from the shelves by itself. No one was either around or near it.

        I remembered being in the basement to take some tests, and the hallway leading to the testing room was creepy. Great memories!

    2. I went to school there in 2003-2005. The new library would sometimes be open 24 hours for midterm exams. I was in the computer room by “Myself” around 2 or 3am. I was sitting all the way in the back row towards the wall… So there was no way anyone was behind me, I was facing the enterance and could see if someone would come in…

      So all of a sudden I feel something or someone grab the back of my hair and jerk it twice… F**k that….. was kinda freaked out… got up… grabbed my belongings and walked out… After that never walked by myself at night there.
