Tricks, Treats and Toilet Seats: Haunted Campus?

Read Time:2 Minute, 31 Second

As Halloween approaches, The Collegian spoke to students about their spooky experiences on campus.

The numerous responses received via social media revealed that for many students, the scariest places on campus are the bathrooms in buildings that rarely get much attention. Several responses highlighted, for example, the bathroom on the third floor of the family and food science department and the speech arts bathroom.

Sabrina Ramirez, a senior and actor in the upcoming production of Misery, also shared that she believes the downstairs bathroom in the Social Sciences Building is a hot spot for creepy activity, specifically noting the “third stall [is] hella awful.”

Naturally, The Collegian investigated these places to see if they really are as scary as students say. Here’s what we found.

Third floor bathroom at Family and Food Science

Located on the top floor of the family and food building, the bathroom is in a dark corner at the top of a dimly lit stairwell. The only sound comes from the hum of the ventilation system that pierces the walls of the building. However, in the bathroom, the sound stops, and the room is lit by a single light bulb. Although there were no footsteps or ghosts, there was a feeling of eeriness.

Surprisingly, at the time the Collegian investigated the bathroom, there was not a single person on that floor. The long corridor between the two ends of the building was filled with classrooms and offices, but none of them contained a soul – at least not a living one.

Near the entrance to The Collegian’s office are two small bathrooms in a narrow hallway that seems suspiciously unlit.

Once inside, the sounds of students’ footsteps and conversations came through the walls. However, as soon as the buzz of activity was noticed, all sounds stopped. All that remained was the hum of lights overhead and a cold pool of water from the flooded stall.

A terrible roar suddenly filled the bathroom, and the terrible sound of old water pipes would make even the bravest bulldog shudder in fear. Although no supernatural phenomena were recorded, this does not diminish the appallingly poor plumbing in the bathroom.

This bathroom was notable for being in an even narrower corridor than the previous one. Even more horrifying was how large and bright it was, leaving almost no shadows for the hideous fiend to hide in. After checking the third stall, it was confirmed that there were no otherworldly creatures in the bathroom

Despite the widespread concern among students about these spooky bathrooms, it seems that ghosts and ghouls are taking a break this Halloween season. During our investigation, The Collegian was unable to document any sounds, apparitions or unexplained phenomena at any of the locations. However, our video camera was malfunctioning, causing the audio to fail and the recording to be corrupted. Maybe the ghosts are waiting for Halloween to really petrify the students.
