The Mysterious and Macabre of the University of Oklahoma

Strange sounds, secret societies, and spectres… all just a part of the darker side of OU.

While backpacking around Europe and attending every ghost tour I could find, I mentioned to a friend of mine the only local ghost story I knew,
the "Ellison Hall Ghost."  She suggested I do a ghost tour of OU; I chuckled and said, "There aren't enough stories!"

Well, I was very wrong.  Turns out there are so many stories I picked the best.  Starting October 2009, I began informal walks around campus telling the tales.

My walking tours are seventy-five minutes and open to the public.  Sign-ups are available on the OU Tours site.
