The University of Minnesota Duluth’s Griggs Hall has a haunted toilet, students say. And the commode has not one, but two ghosts. Both students died of alcohol poisoning, and the ghosts are said to manifest by the sounds of moaning, profane language, and retching along with a bad smell.

    We live in Griggs F, a triple dorm. This November my roommate experienced a paranormal experience. He awoke with with scratches on his back in a horizontal manner. And just recently on the same day the 18th 3 months apart, my other roommate woke up in the middle of the night kicking a dark figure away from his bed. The next day we looked at his back and there were the same horizontal scratches on his back. We struggle to understand how and why this happened. All we know is that Griggs is definitely haunted.
