Explore UTEP’s Ghostly Side during Annual Haunted Campus Tours
Like much of El Paso, the UTEP campus has been around for many, many years. And like a lot of the old buildings in El Paso, some of the university's have a haunted history.
The UTEP Student Alumni Association will share tales of that paranormal past this Friday, Oct. 26, during its 12th annual Haunted Campus Tours event.
Fans of the historical and the supernatural will be entertained with stories of the spirits rumored to roam its buildings and the locations where paranormal activity is said to occur.
Places like the Rubin Center, Cotton Memorial, and the Magoffin Auditorium -- where it's said the ghost of a workman who died after falling from the grid above the stage can often be heard moving around on the catwalks above the stage -- are just some of the campus locations many believe are haunted and that will be visited during the walking tour.
If the Haunted Campus Tours sounds like the kind of spooky Friday night you'd like to be a part of, meet at the Peter and Margaret de Wetter Center next to the administration building located on University Avenue, between 6 p.m. and 11 p.m.
You don’t have to be a UTEP student to attend; "Haunted Campus" is open to the public. Tickets are $6 in advance or $10 at the door the day of. To purchase tickets in advance, CLICK HERE. For more information visit UTEP Student Alumni Association Facebook.
