10 of the Most Haunted Colleges in America

Reader's Digest Logo By Elisa Roland of Reader's Digest | Slide 2 of 10: Recently making the news for lowering its tuition rates by 20 percent (here are some weird college scholarships you can actually apply for), Drew University in Madison, New Jersey is making college more affordable for students, but its ghosts have always attended for free. Whether it's sightings of the student that supposedly hung them self from the rafters of Asbury Hall or the dark haired woman spotted on the fifth floor of Hoyt Hall, these ghosts are forever residents. To keep things running smoothly with all those other ghosts around, the spirit of Roxanna Mead Drew, wife of the university's founder, is said to float about Mead Hall, her namesake. Rumor has it that while fighting a fire that broke out there in 1989, two firefighters attempted to rescue a trapped woman but the flames burned right through her and then she vanished. They noted she was dressed oddly, in a 19th century garment.
