University of Texas El Paso, aka UTEP, has more than its share of haunted buildings. Folks say that at Old Main, Cotton Memorial, the Geology Building, Hudspeth Hall and Worrell Hall, there are sounds of footsteps, trash cans that open by themselves and flickering lights. And on the library’s fifth floor, a ghostly woman with red hair has been seen. A legend told about Seamon Hall is that it’s haunted by the ghost of a student who was killed by a professor who had impregnated her, and a cheeky ghost in the Fox Fine Arts building is said to have lifted up dancers’ skirts.
