Know Any Good Ghost Stories?

Every university in America has folklore. There have always been stories about haunted libraries and apparitions wandering the dorms. UNC is no different and there is no other time of year better suited to share these stories and legends than October. With Halloween right around the corner, we want to ask if any of you have any scary or unexplained stories from your days with Psi at UNC.

Just to name a few spooky UNC legends; The ghost of Horace Williams is said to roam Caldwell Hall, a ghost from the 1940s named “Evan” has shown up in Memorial Hall, a swirl of specters is said to inhabit Abernathy from when it was an infirmary and the Carolina Inn is said to be haunted by the fun-loving presence of longtime resident William Jacocks. There are other stories that accompany Forest Theatre, Horace Willams House and Gimghoul Castle but a simple Google can unlock these legends in greater detail.
