    I live in Geneva Smith (what they renamed it) and the other night I had a very odd experience the other night feeling as if someone was looking at my I got out of bed and thought I was someone at the end of my bed, I quickly ran to my lights. I thought nothing of it till I told my roommate and she said her boyfriend experienced the same thing a few weeks ago when he slept over. I also constantly hear ping pong balls bouncing off the ceiling with no explanation.

  3. I live on the third floor of grafton and I am sacred to sleep sometimes. My first night in the building i was alone and my roommate hadnt moves in yet. When I was laying in my bed trying to sleep I felt somehting touch my feet it freaked me out for a bit. A few days after that the oven in the kitchen was left on, that oven has been broken since last year. Don’t even get me started on the bathrooms…

    • I lived on the third floor of Grafton in 2019 and I still swear it was haunted (especially the bathroom.) One time I was in sitting in the stall alone in the bathroom and suddenly the stall next to me opens and I feel a breeze that someone walked in it (when nobody in fact did).
