One thing that really stuck out about these experiences is that they all seemed to concentrate on Wilson Hall. Wilson Hall is an all-women's dormitory. It was built between 1960 and 1962, and opened as the Women's Upperclass Hall. It was re-dedicated in 1977 in honor of Ms. Damaris O. Wilson, Dean of Women from 1952-1972.
According to numerous sources, students staying in the dorms have similar experiences. The terrible nightmares mentioned do occur and are typically said to involve the students dreaming that they are being murdered, and in some cases, are committing the murder. It is also said that those who have previously shown no signs of depression or anxiety feel unaccounted for fear and sadness while staying in the dorms.
The third floor of Wilson Hall is one of the building's hot-spots. Some have seen a young girl wearing white roaming the halls. It is believed that a former student committed suicide in room 320 by hanging herself from the clothes bar in the closet. Doors opening, voices, and other noises have been observed coming from the room.
Other hot-spots seem to be the 4th floor, the basement rec room, and even the first floor, where a student observed the phantom sounds of a group of people running down the hall laughing.
