Haunted Colleges - Mount Saint Mary's by Geoff Gould
POSTED: 7 November 98
I am a freshman at Mount Saint Mary's college in Emmitsburg, Maryland. My
friend's brother graduated from this school, and he has said that he has
seen ghosts here. I myself have not seen any yet, but I have spoken with
some upperclassmen and many seem to know about the ghost stories. My
friend's brother and some upperclassmen here told me there is one
particular room where no students are allowed to stay. Supposedly,
furniture has moved around in the room when no one was around. In
addition to this, my school is very close to Civil War battlegrounds. So
perhaps some restless spirits from the war are still roaming around myschool.
Haunted Colleges - Young Harris College by Laurie Cory

When I went to Young Harris College back in 87, I was told there was a ghost
in the Arts building (Clegg). I'm not sure who the ghost was suposed to be
but, one of the things to do on campus was to go "Clegging" to see if you
could find the ghost. We tried to go one night but got caught by campus
security. So, I don't know if it was just a story they tell freshmen or
what. I do know that one of my friends started at the school this Fall and
he said that he has heard the same story. I don't know... alot of weird
stuff happened in our dorm though. There was the one room where the water
would turn on by itself. The weird thing about it was one night we were
teasing a couple of girls (who lived in that room) that a girl had commited
suicide in that room and she haunts it. They suddenly looked at each other
and said "no wonder the water comes on all the time!!" My roommate and I
about freaked!! We were just kidding and there was something going on!!
Haunted Colleges - San Jose State by Dave Lundy
POSTED: 20 November 98
San Jose State (1857) in San Jose California was
gathering site for Japanese internees during WorldWar Two.
The old gym was used for processing and holding until
the Internees were sent away. There have been lots of
stories about the sounds of doors closing, crying,
foot steps and voices --in a foreign language--, when no one is there.
Also--it is very near the old Chinatown which was
"mysteriously" (as a plaque downtown describes it)
burned down and never rebuilt in the 1800's.
