College Poltergeist

July 24, 2011

Pretty much anyone who went to Ohio University has a ghost story. Athens, OH is one of those “most haunted places” they show on television specials and for good reason.

Sophomore year of college I lived in Bryan Hall. During orientation, they told us that Bryan Hall had a resident ghost. They told us not to fear, as the ghost was “friendly”, but sort of annoying.

I didn’t think much of it until one night, my roommate and I were asleep when we were awoken by stuff crashing to the floor. After a few seconds of panic and scrambling to turn on the lights, we found that everything sitting on my roommates desk had been basically thrown onto the floor. Very creepy.

But then it kept happening. Every few weeks, the ghost would make it’s way into our room and move our stuff around, often times throwning things on the floor and waking us up in the middle of the night.

The funny thing is after about 3 or 4 times, it stopped being weird and just started being really annoying. We’d be dead asleep at 4:00am and CRASH! At that point, we would just start screaming and cursing at the ghost to stop waking us up.

But the experience of being at OU certainly changed my perspective on ghosts.
