Freaky Friday: Ohio Dominican University

Who says all ghosts have to be scary? Ohio Dominican is said to be home to a maternal apparition who acted as the Mother Superior during the school’s “Girls-Only” days.

Legend has it that she died in a fire that destroyed the convent. Eventually, the Sansbury Residence Hall was built in the convent’s place and she has returned to keep watch over the girls there, turning off appliances and lights that had been left on. She is known for opening and closing doors as well as moving things. However, her actions come across in a more motherly than menacing way.

Other stories underline her maternal nature as well. A website describing various haunted Ohio colleges tells the story of a janitor who was hard at work cleaning a bathroom when she felt a tap on her shoulder. After looking around for a moment, she discovered no one was there and went back to work. It happened several more times until she left, very uneasy, in search of her coworker. After further investigation, she finally found her coworker, yelling for help after having fallen down the stairs and broken her leg. It was as if Mother Sansbury had led her straight there!
