Freaky Friday is back just in time for one of the most notoriously spooky days of the year – Friday the 13th. As a student at Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, I thought this was the perfect time to share some scary stories from my school.
Moravian has been around since the 1700s; in fact, it is the 6th oldest college in the country! It started out as an all girls seminary and is now a college and seminary for both men and women. The long-standing history of the school was more than enough to convince me there must be some spooky tales. I was definitely not disappointed – keep reading to see what I found!
It is rumored that Comenius Hall, the oldest building on north campus, is haunted by John A. Comenius, the person the building is named after! People say they have seen a light going back and forth on the top floor of the building.
A war nurse haunts the music building on south campus. Some students claim they feel a cold spot in the room or have seen her figure walking around. She is also notorious for opening and closing doors. I have a friend who claims he was the only one in the building when he heard her footsteps along with the sounds of doors opening and closing!
The residents of Bernie-Willie dorm are subjected to loud scratching and banging noises. One might be quick to blame neighboring rooms for causing the noise, but the cement walls that separate the rooms make the source of the sounds a mystery. Students living in this building have also claimed to have heard someone running back and forth on the roof.
I had no idea there were so many spooky stories from my school! Does your school have any ghostly tales? Share them with us in the comments below and you could see yours featured here soon!
