Another ghoul said to haunt the campus is a gruesome spirit wielding an axe that usually appears around Halloween time.
Schwab Auditorium has two ghosts:
- The ghost of a former president of the school, which is reputed to be rather friendly.
- A rather noisy ghost rumbles around in the attic, pushing around chairs and other stored items; they say it's most noisy during exams. After one professor had to stop a test because of the racket, he ventured into the attic with a couple of football players to confront the pranksters. They found nothing except fresh scrape marks on the floor.
Across the street from the auditorium is the Botany building, built in 1909. The ghost here is the plant-loving life of the former president (the one who haunts the auditorium). This spirit shows her displeasure when the building's plants are not properly cared for. She'll dump garbage from the trash cans onto the middle of the floor, unplug computer printers, and flick lights off and on.
