Freaky Friday: Point Park

This week’s ghostly journey takes us to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania– home to Point Park University. Though it proved difficult to find spooky stories at Point Park, we have more than enough reasons to believe they exist.

On forum College Confidential, one incoming student was curious (like us) about the existence of the ghosts on campus:

“I requested to live in Lawrence Hall for my first year as opposed to the other freshman dorm…In my research on Point Park’s website and on other forums, I have recently heard of a ghost named the ‘Lawrence Hall Shuffler’ that haunts this residence hall.”

In the replies to this post, it seems strange occurrences have happened in the resident hall. One forum member said there were instances of “shuffling outside and light tapping on your doors at night…”

That sounds like the work of the super-natural to me!

If this tale wasn’t enough to convince us, consider this: the Office of Campus Life added a ‘Paranormal Activity’ option to their Living and Learning Communities in 2010. Students interested in learning more about the paranormal world can choose to live in a community that will allow them to investigate Pittsburgh’s ghost stories, including the ‘Lawrence Hall Shuffler and to visit Penn State’s Parapsychology Department to learn how to properly ghost hunt.

In case you’re not convinced yet, we suggest you head to the website for Haunted Pittsburgh. This company offers area tours that combine history with haunting tales. If you plan to visit Pittsburgh, take time out to learn more about the ghosts around town!
