The Third Roommate.
My roommate and I always heard things fall in the kitchen and in my roommate’s room. At the end of the semester, I helped my roommate move his stuff out and then went back to my room to study for finals. Suddenly, I heard footsteps at the end of the hall. I figured my roommate forgot something, so I ignored it and continued my work. Following the footsteps, I heard pans fall in the kitchen. I quickly got up and went to the kitchen, only to find nothing on the floor and the entire suite empty. Then, I heard my roommate’s bathroom door close slowly (creek and door latch), and I knew someone was there with me. I quickly opened Snapchat to record it. I made my way down the hall only to hear and see the other bathroom door close. Scariest part? It’s caught on tape and no one was there.

I See Dead People.
This happened my first year of college. I was walking to the parking lot so that my mom could pick me up. As I walked along the building, I looked in font of me and saw a girl dressed in all black with black hair just walking. We weren’t that far apart from each other. As we walked, it was as if the other people around didn’t even see her – like she wasn’t even there. After she turned the corner, I followed and turned too, only to find that she was no longer anywhere to be found.

My roommate and I lived in a haunted residence hall last year. We started to notice strange things once we realized we were closing more drawers than we had been opening. We also always felt like somebody was watching, which made the hairs stand up on the backs of our necks. One day before winter break, I was sitting on my bed talking to my dad on the phone when every single drawer in my room (desk drawers, wardrobe doors, dresser drawers) flew open all at once. I screamed at the top of my lungs, and the RA came knocking on my door to see if I was okay. When I told her what happened, she said she wasn’t surprised…. Scariest moment I’ve ever had.

Mary, Mary, Please Don’t Be Scary.
It was my first semester at the University. There were four floors in my dorm building, and I lived on the third floor. One day, my roommate and I were studying in our room, and we heard what sounded like furniture being moved upstairs. I proceeded to tell her, “Well, at least they’re doing it now instead of 2 AM.” She asked what I meant, so I explained, “These people literally move their stuff in the middle of the night. It’s annoying actually.” She then replied, “Ain’t nobody live on the fourth floor…” I asked around, and I even went to go look. She was right. The doors to enter the fourth floor were locked and chained. It is said that the fourth floor is haunted by a ghost lady named Mary, and she appears to the sick to heal them because of her role in the Civil War.

Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid.
My roommates and I were trying to hang a mirror in the hallway, but it kept falling. We would hear the thump and walk around and see it on the floor leaning against the wall. One night, it started falling and I ran to catch it so it wouldn’t break. As I got closer, I could see my reflection and saw a thick, dark silhouette standing behind me over my shoulder. It looked like a man with a cloak on, but kind of fuzzy at the edges. It was a dead end hallway so I knew I was alone. I freaked out, screamed, and goosebumps ran up my arms. Just as I screamed, the mirror crashed and the hallway light exploded above me. I’m still afraid to look in mirrors at night – you never know what might be looking back.

Blood Donors Needed.
I was heading back to my dorm from the library one night around midnight when I noticed a trail of blood along the side walk. Curious to find out what happened, I followed the trail and noticed the drops of blood growing larger and larger. I wondered if it was going to lead to the scene of a fight. Suddenly, the trail of blood stopped and I never found out what happened.
