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 Rubin Center, Cotton Memorial, and the Magoffin Auditorium -- where 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.
The UTEP Student Alumni Association will share some of those ghostly tales this Friday, Oct. 27, during its 11th annual Haunted Campus Tours event.
Fans of the historical and the supernatural will be entertained with stories of the spirits rumored to roam its hallways and the places where paranormal activity is said to occur.
Each guided tour of the campus, which includes access to the inside of some of the alleged haunted buildings, will end with a frightfully fun walk through the association's own Haunted House.
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.
Tickets are $8 in advance or $10 at the door. Discounts are available for students, military and alumni. For more details visit UTEP Student Alumni Association Facebook
