Which haunted college in Indiana is the MOST haunted?
You’d think “haunted colleges in Indiana” is a pretty narrow search After all, what are the odds of having more than one college be plagued by spirits in one little Midwestern state? Well, the Hoosier State must be lucky (or unlucky, depending on how you look at it), because it’s home to not one but many allegedly haunted college campuses! There are the famed ghost stories at Notre Dame (more on those in a moment), but other haunted colleges in Indiana include Earlham College, in Richmond, Hanover College, in Hanover, Valparaiso University, in Valparaiso, and many more. Seems like that for some of these spirits, school’s out... forever.
What’s the story behind the hauntings at University of Notre Dame?
Indiana’s famed University of Notre Dame has plenty of ghosts to go around, it seems. For example, Le Mans Hall is one of the more notoriously haunted places at Notre Dame. Built in the 1800s, multiple people have reported a woman hanging from the bell tower only for authorities to find nothing of the sort there. Supposedly, there was indeed a suicide that occurred there, adding authenticity to the stories. On the fourth floor is an infirmary where, supposedly, there is a literal bloodstain still on the floor from another mishap there, which has also resulted in the haunting of Le Mans Hall.
Where are some of Indiana’s most haunted places?

There used to be a place known as the Carolina Street Demon House, which was as haunted as it was evil, but it was razed to the ground not too long ago (to which we say, well, good).
