    I noticed a while back it was locked. I didn't see any reasons that would have led to a lock. Did it just get too big?

    Janitor hears his name, turns around, and no ones there.

    Either students are messing with him, or he's a lunatic

    Seriously, that whole hallway down in Friley just has an eerie feeling to it

    Spent all last evening reading the original thread. I've been on here for a couple years now, and just found it. It was definitely a good read.

    I read this post, thought "I bet I know which janitor said this," and opened the article.

    I was right

    Just how did the student know the pants were cotton?

    Isn't one of the dorms supposedly haunted by a ghost of a football player?

    I had never heard about the Gold Star Hall thing until this article.

    I worked student security in Helser and Friley for 2 years and have been through every inch of both buildings including all the tunnels/basements and the roofs many, many times. Never saw anything even though everyone tries to scare you with stories of the hauntings. Friley is just a big old spooky building and when it is deserted and dark people get jumpy.

    The shrine west of Ames always gives me the creeps. It's just plain weird even with all the trees lined in rows.

    I've been through the steam tunnels also and just a lot of noises nothing to freaky.

    I got chased by a raccoon once by Agronomy or somewhere in that area once. That's my creepy story.

    The original was the best thread of all-time on CF. Please resurrect it!

    This popped up in my head the other day. When I was in school, we went by a few times. Once or twice the guy was outside. Very weird and creepy place. Would love to get in there sometime and definitely want to go back.

    Any truth to the rumors of the Farrar school being haunted?

    Thanks for finding, I know what Ill be doing the rest of the night. I love this sort of stuff

    I remember when I was in school a few friends and I made our way down to Friley's haunted part so many times. It always gave me the chills. We even found our way into the abandoned cafeteria once because of a door left open. We somehow ended up another level or two below the Dungeons. We could only stay down there for like 10 minutes before being so creeped out we left
