The Southern Campus here is abandoned, but was once a recovery center for people with the Spanish Flu. Victims were buried in a nearby field and said to still be as well as victims of polio, the 1933 Long Beach earthquake, a flood in the 1930’s, and a secretary who jumped to her death. Full-bodied apparitions are seen walking around here.
