Walk the Haunted Trail at UTEP Haunted Campus Tour
Who -- or what -- haunts the halls of UTEP?
The University of Texas at El Paso campus has been around for over a century and, boy, does it have a haunted history. The UTEP Student Alumni Association will share tales of the university's paranormal past this Friday, Oct. 29, during its 14th Annual Haunted Campus tour.
Fans of the historical and the supernatural will be entertained with stories of the spirits rumored to roam its buildings and visit the locations where supernatural activity is said to occur.
The History and Hauntings
Locations that will be visited during the guided walking tour include 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, Cotton Memorial where both students and staff members have reported seeing shadows and other supernatural entities in different sections of the building, and Quinn Hall.
Legend has it that when Quinn Hall housed the English Department several decades ago, a professor who had received confirmation that his wife was having an affair took his life there and roams the building to this day.
Attendees will also learn about the ghostly goings-on at Old Main, the Psychology Building, and the Fox Fine Arts building.
