  1. Lima Hall was definately haunted and other locations on campus too. I attended from 1979-83 and I can tell you people were smelling smoke with no fire–seeing ghosts in the hall- some research was done and there was a twickenham residence or some such name where people had perished in a fire. Spooked the daylights out of me!

    My boyfriend and I were on the first floor of Lima hall ready to go to bed around 5:30am when we heard loud screeching sounds. We thought it could’ve been the radiator but we never heard it before. We shook the first one off but then it continued. We thought the sound was coming from his roommates closet so we opened it to find nothing was there. He came back into bed and the sound then continued. The last sound was a loud screeching sound that lasted about 30 seconds. It sounded like a dying demon you would see in a scary movie. This was on and off for 30 minutes with only about a minute between screeches till we decided to go upstairs to my dorm.
