  1. I went to college here back in the early 1990’s. The library was a fantastic place to grab a nap. Nice and quiet, cool, but always had that strange smell of damp musty old books. No freaky stuff ever happened while I was there. Today in 2014, the old library is gone. I guess my tuition went to help pay for the lavish facilities. 😉

  2. Lol. I went to school here. Never heard this story before. Don’t even remember the library. Guess thats why I failed most classes the one year I attended.

  3. I lived in OceanView Hall, sometimes when I would stay up late, I would always feel a huge pressure in my room around 1-3AM. I would feel like there was something standing in the corner watching me. I would be terrified to even step out of my bed to use the restroom unless I couldn’t hold it in. I would constantly have to tell myself there’s nothing in this room except me, to gather courage to get back to my bed without screaming out of anxiety. What’s interesting is that when my roommate would sleep in the room with me, even during those times, I wouldn’t feel worried or the pressure. She would usually sleep where the figure was.
