Union College seems to have a haunted Financial Aid office: Witnesses say the doors open and close, and even lock and unlock, on their own. The spirit is believed to be a woman who lived and died under mysterious circumstances here when the building was a private residence. Also haunting Union College, in Pfeiffer Hall room 245, is the ghost of a student named James Garner who fell out his window while trying to close it. James was a 6′ 4″ football player whom records show died at around midnight on Oct. 30, 1963. Doors open and close and lights turn on and off on their own nearby as well.

    The manager of the cafeteria said he witnessed a big wooden spoon come flying off the rack by itself and he was in the back office alone and it was very very late, with no one around and the big outside door opened and closed. He said things would go flying off the shelves periodically. He said he never believed in ghost but that made a believer out of him.
