Many ghosts haunt this university, from a sea captain named Jacobs to a 1992 student who died of electrocution and now tinkers with the electricity. Several houses have their own ghosts: the Allen House’s lives on the top floor, and the Bittersweet House’s wears 1800s garb. From various buildings and parts of the campus come reports of unexplained voices, slamming doors, strange sounds, cold presences and much more.
