As Halloween rolls gustily around the corner, some of us might wax nostalgic for the hallowed eves of yore -- when we ate our weight in sugary sweets, dressed up in uncomfortable costumes and listened to stories that we knew would give us nightmares. Just because we're older doesn't mean we can't indulge in that last tradition (or the first two, for that matter) -- even college campuses have their share of spooky lore.

Below, check out 13 haunted college campuses and the tales behind their ghostly reputations. Is your campus afflicted by a wandering poltergeist? Share your stories in the comments section!

Keene State College: Huntress Hall
1 of 14
According to school lore, Huntress Hall has been haunted ever since the ghost of its namesake, Harriet Lane Huntress, learned that the dorm -- designed to house 157 females -- was transformed into co-ed housing during WWII. Apparently upset by the gender imbalance, Huntress has continued to creak about on her ghostly (but, according to Keene State students, loud) wheelchair in the hall's attic to this day.
