Ohio University - Real Athens Haunted Place
There are a number of different locations on campus that are said to be haunted, including the Brown House, where ghostly children can be heard splashing around in the long-gone swimming pool. Jefferson Hall is said to have a "marble sound," which happens most often on the top floor of the building and is the sound of someone dropping hundreds of marbles on the floor above you.
Washington Hall is believed to have an entire ghostly girl's basketball team lurking inside its building, but mostly in the hallway over the arch that connects the hall with Read Hall. Another version of this story includes a men's basketball team that haunts the top floor and the attic, which used to be a rec room.
Bush Hall is also said to have the "marble sounds," along with a poltergeist who haunts the place by turning the water faucets on and off and messing with the lights. At Shively Hall, a student in the 1970's was said to have participated in cult ceremonies at the nearby Hanning Cemetery, and when she stopped, she experienced a number of eerie things in her dorm room. Stories say she said she would have feelings of being pulled to the northeast, back toward the cemetery.
Voigt Hall, Perkins Hall, Cutler Hall, Crawford Hall and Wilson Hall are also among the spots on campus that have paranormal activity.

Wilson hall and so much more
I am a OU student. There are so many more things this article is missing. Wilson hall is the most haunted dorm. Multiple students have lost there mind there and attempted to eand their lives or did so after living on the 4th floor in one room that is now not in use and the numbers on the doors have been changed to try to not let students know which room it was. There are 5 main cemeteries surrounding the Athens campus. Wilson hall is in the dirrect middle perfectly and it forms a pentagram. There are weird things that happen. OU has a chain of old tunnels almost never mentioned mainly for maitnince underneath the old sections of campus. There is a cult that meets down there and performs rituals and everyone is afraid to say it is real. OU has tried to cover it up. There is something hellish going on while the rest of the students are out partying.Posted 3/16/23
