The Haunted University
Among the many haunted locations on this campus, is Guillot University Center. Long ago this old building was a girl's dormitory. Apparently, a young woman who lived there wasn't very happy because she hung herself from an elevator shaft. Since that time, the building has changed function but students report seeing her ghost wandering the halls. Norton Auditorium is also said to be haunted by a ghost named George. George was working on Norton auditorium as a construction worker. He fell from the scaffolding and died, but his ghost lives on haunting students and visitors alike and adding his ghostly presence to the numerous phantoms that haunt the halls of UNA.
The Wesleyan Building is also said to be haunted by a civil war general's son who drown himself in a river not far away. His ghost must have formed some attachment to the old building, because his footsteps can still be seen and heard walking the halls at night. Additionally, the off campus bookstore is haunted by the ghost of a little girl who died of rabies.
