The spirit that is said to haunt this 1878 women's college is named Agnes, a former student from the early 1900's. Agnes is said to have hanged herself, her reasoning differs depending on who tells the story. She may have been denied the lead part in a dance performance or was being shunned by sorority members. She hung herself at either the balcony of Pearce Auditorium or at the swimming pool below the Pearce complex. The complex is walled up and some even say that it never existed. Some reported that her spirit can be seen hanging in the auditorium.

  • Ghost on my bed. Caught on skype.

    There are not many things in this world that scare me, but things I cant see are one of them. At Brenau university my worst fears came to life. I had no idea what to do. My roommate had seen full body apparitions twice while we have been romming together. Though I had never seen anything, I always kept my boyfriend on skype. He went to college in South Dakota. One day, both my roommates and I went to dinner for 20 minutes, and as always I left the screen up and the video on. When I came back, I turned all the lights on and ran over to talk to him. There were three guys in the screen freaking out. I was laughing and asking them what was going on. He told me, "Elizabeth DO NOT FREAK OUT! PROMISE ME YOU WON'T FREAK OUT, but there's I think there's a ghost in your room." I immediately freaked out, and ran from my room. He messaged the screenshots he had taken on Skype, explaining that after I left a black figure appeared on my bed and move across the screen back and forth. He thought it was me, but the shape never cleared up. He kept talking to "me", telling me it wasn't funny. After a few minutes of nothing being said by "me" but the image still moving, he called in his friends. They watched in shock as the figure was on their screen. When I returned from dinner and they heard the door open, the shadow immediately disappeared. Later that night a box fell from the top of our closet. It had been there for over 5 months and not moved. Let's just say I requested to be moved soon after that.
