By September 24, 2018September 18th, 2019Ghost Stories from Ohio's Colleges, Haunted Colleges in Ohio

Well, it is once again time for us to put on a sweater and gather around the campfire for a few of the many ghost stories from Ohio’s great colleges. This will be the third year in our series, “Ohio’s Haunted Colleges,” and is our most popular blog series! If you want to catch up, check out our prior year’s offerings archived in our blog.

This year we will offer three new stories including the story of Kenyon College’s Pierson’s Ghost: the spirit of a student killed on a nearby train trestle under mysterious circumstances.  We will also visit Oxford, Ohio, the home of Miami University, and discuss the Ghostly Cyclist who returns to the road he died on and responds to students who know the secret code. Finally, we will learn about the penitent ghost on Ohio Dominican University’s campus.

So, pull up next to the fire and prepare for this season’s offerings from Ohio’s haunted colleges.
