Parthenon article by Kelly Donahue:
Old Main While tales abound from each part of this structure, Old Main is most noted for its ghost(s) of the stage. A large, well-dressed man has been seen sitting backstage during performances who quickly disappears. This man is believed to possibly be the ghost of a 1920s theater director. This director disappeared after he was discovered to have been embezzling money from the college. However, in the late 1980s, a set of invoices and bills from the 1920s began arriving, signed by the missing director. Old Main history.
Morrow Library Morrow Library is now home to special collections and much of it is off limits with the new Drinko Library opening up. However, at the time of this article, the library was still a largely functioning building...and a spooky one at that. Several students admitted to have heard loud arguments while no one was around, and one student claims to have seen books fall off the shelf for no apparent reason.
Twin Towers East In room 1218 of Twin Towers East (the male dorm) Jason Ranson had an experience that he said still haunted him. While lying in bed one night, Ranson claims to have seen the image of a young man sitting in his room, looking at him and his roommate. In fear, Ranson pulled his blanket up over his head momentarily and when he looked again, the young man had disappeared and the door was still locked. Ranson later learned from friends that a young man had in fact committed suicide in that room.
Sigma Phi Epsilon House The Sigma Phi Epsilon House is located at 1401 Fifth Avenue. In the late 1960s or early 1970s it is rumored that a woman named Gail and her twin sons died in a basement fire of the home. Reports of hearing sobbing and seeing unexplained images are just a few of the things that are attributed to the ghosts. According to Chris Neusbaum, a junior and resident at the time of the article, the ghost of Gail takes care of the fraternity house and is a welcome addition.
Alpha Chi Omega House At the Alpha Chi Omega house (located directly across from Corbly Hall on Fifth Avenue) is the ghost of another little boy who died in a fire. Unexplainable gusts of cool air, flickering basement lights that electricians cannot explain, and disappearing/reappearing objects are just some of the occurrences attributed to the little ghost boy.More Marshall locations and stories coming soon!
