I believe that the Chi Omega house was demolished and rebuilt (this was told to me by a Chi O). You can't expect girls to live in that room, much less the house where such a horrific thing occured.

Michigan Murders

Here's a creepy one and there's actually a book about it called The Michigan Murders. A man named John Norman Collins- who is rumored to have been a Theta Chi (they're not on our campus anymore..hmmmm) killed 7 women in the Ann Arbor- Ypsilanti area between 1967 and 1969. I'm not sure if any of them were sorority women though, but at least one was an EMU student. He was arrested in 1969 at the age of 21. I read the book and it's really scary to know exactly where the places are that bodies were found and stuff. I think he actually lived in a house down the street from our house! Scary!

The Beta Theta Pi house of WVU is rumored to be haunted. I remember that it was documented on a tv show about haunted spots in WV, but the only place I found any documentation of any kind was http://www.hauntedusa.com/states/westvirginia.htm

Beta Psi Chapter
Residents of the fraternity have reported clanging of chains in a lower room of the house. It is believed to be the ghost of the late butler of the house in the 1940s.
Apparently another man hanged himself in our basement also.

I went to a conference at a certain Vermot school, and they claimed ghost haunted their fraternity house.... Some guy who had died of cancer or something, and would be seen late at night in the bathroom... Apparently you would you in the mirror and his face would ppear. Very spooky.

I go to FSU, and I don't think the house has been demolished. I heard that they re-did the inside though, so no one has to live in the rooms where girls were murdered. I'm not positive though! I'll try to ask around tactfully!

Red face

All of the sororities on our campus have houses. At the ZTA house last year, as one of the girls was getting ready for bed in her room, a man jumped out of the closet and attacked her. Fortunately she was able to get away, but he broke her jaw because of the force of his hand over her mouth. No one knows who the man was, he fled the house and went unseen.

Here's the story from the Seattle Times..

It's school as usual at UW, despite attack on campus

By Ray Rivera
Seattle Times staff reporter



The elegant, red-brick building that houses Zeta Tau Alpha sorority sits on a leafy street that shoots almost directly onto the University of Washington campus.

Yesterday, the first day of the fall quarter, the street was bustling with students, backpacks slung over their shoulders, hustling to and from class. Fraternity brothers sat on concrete steps of their houses in shorts and T-shirts, flirting with passing students and taking in the warm weather. Sorority pledges walked somewhat timidly around their new neighborhood.

If Norman Rockwell were to paint a college scene today, it might look like this.

It's easy to forget that these students, many of them away from home for the first time, live in one of the worst crime areas of the city.

They got an alarming reminder over the weekend when an 18-year-old woman at Zeta Tau Alpha sorority house was attacked in her room early Saturday morning in an apparent rape attempt.

Her assailant remains on the loose.

"It's scary to think that I can't crack my window for air at night because some guy might sneak in and attack," said Megan Cieplik, 19, as she and a roommate sat outside their apartment a few doors away from the Zeta house.

The victim was treated and released from the UW Medical Center. Neither police nor the hospital would disclose the extent of her injuries, except that she had facial injuries.

Anyone with information can contact Seattle police Detective Robert Howard at 206-684-5495.

The sorority, meanwhile, has remained mum about the incident, stating that its national advisers would issue a news release within the next few days.

UW officials have taken several steps over the years to ensure student safety, including spending more than $1 million in the last decade to add more than 1,000 lampposts on campus, and 54 security and code-blue phones to give students quick access to the campus security escort service and police, said Ernest Morris, UW vice president of student affairs.

Painful reminders of crime

Students received tragic reminders of violence earlier this year when, first, a popular freshman was shot and killed by a pizza delivery man after he walked across the hood of the driver's car on University Way Northeast.

Two months later, a second-year pathology resident, distraught at being terminated, gunned down his mentor at the UW Medical School, world-renowned pathologist Rodger Haggit, then turned the gun on himself.

The second event brought new urgency to issues of workplace violence at the university. A committee headed by UW police Capt. Jon Broulette is expected to release a set of recommendations to the Campus Safety Advisory Committee within this week.

While slayings are rare at and around the university, statistics compiled by the Seattle Police Department and analyzed by The Seattle Times show that total crime in the neighborhoods adjacent to the UW campus are in the upper echelon of the city's worst crime areas, behind only downtown, Belltown and the Northgate Mall area.

Police track crime in the city by census tracts, areas with populations of roughly 4,000 people each. The UW campus is its own tract. Adjacent to it is Tract 5301, which includes most of Greek Row and a long stretch of University Way Northeast from Northeast 41st Street to Northeast 50th Street, the students' main shopping and dining strip, also known as "The Ave."

Assaults, burglaries, thefts and auto thefts make up the brunt of the crimes.

Between 1996 and this June, police reported:


823 aggravated and non-aggravated assaults, ranking the tract 12th in the city out of more than 120 tracts.

493 residential and non-residential burglaries, ranking it ninth in the city.

207 robberies, ranking it fifth.

3,697 thefts, again fifth in the city.

In the total number of slayings, the area is near the bottom, and in rapes it is 25th.

Overall, campus police and most students consider the area safe.

"I won't go out and hang out alone at The Ave at night, but if I'm with someone, I feel safe," said Andrea Munro, a 19-year-old sophomore.

Comparing student safety at the UW to other comparable schools is tricky. Beginning in 1998, federal law required campuses to include crime statistics from contiguous areas around the campus. But deciding those boundaries and finding ways to accurately track crime in them has been met with mixed success.

UW police, for example, find it hard to believe that the University of Southern California, in the middle of South Central Los Angeles, has less crime than the UW. In 1998, for example, USC reported four assaults, the UW 93.

Scary story(At Least For Me It Was):

This past summer I got to live in the house, while I was taking classes (the house is always closed during it, but they made an exception). I was a lil nervous at first being in such a huge house (can house 66 girls), and the only other person who was there was our house mom, but at the time she had went away for a judical conference for a week. There had always been rumors about some girl who hung herself, but we wer always told it was just to scare new members, and about the homeless man living in our basement, and a deceased founder roaming the house. So when she went away for the wek and I started hearing more noises than usual it wasnt fun. One day I decided to go up to the third floor to find something. It was about 80 degrees up there so I decided to head back down. You have to go thru this narrow and steep stairwell to get down.The door to the thrid floor is always open, so I just went thru. When I got to the third to last stair, I turned to look back for some reason and the 3rd floor door slammed shut. No wind, no nothin. Needless to say I bolted out of the stairwell and into my room, locked the door and didnt come out the entire night.

Interesting story:

This is a big rumor at UM about the old Sig Ep-Beta chapter. Back in like the early mid 90's the Sig Ep's had alot of troubles on campus and their Nationals put them on probation. No parties, No campus events, nothin. However, the guys decided to hold a cops and robbers party. Well a member and his girlfriend got into a fight, and him being so pissed at her, he took her into the basement and handcuffed her to a chair and left her there.Eventaully after a couple of hours, they went down and got her out. Well sometime that week the girl called thier Nationals and told them about the party and what happened. Nationals came in and revoked the charter. The members were supposedly upset and didnt like it at all. Most ppl didnt feel to sorry for them considering what happened to the girl. However, a few days later the Sig Ep house burned to the ground. No on knows who did it or how it happened, but most ppl including the authorities think its pretty interesting that the members managed to have no damage done to their property. Why? Cuz somehow all of their stuff had been moved out of the house. They only stuff that was found was every single composite, and fraternity owned things (like manuals, paddles, etc). Obviously its RUMORED that they burned down their house after being yanked, but no one can prove it even though ppl are sure. Its always funny to hear the story from ppl who were around then and from Sig Ep's in nearby chapters saying, yeah but no one can prove it

Wayne St. House

I think that the house that Pike4Life is talking about used to be the ATO house in the early 1970's when I was at the then-West Georgia College, now State University of...

I don't get to Carrollton often but I have to go today.. I think that the house is now some type of medical counseling or kids daycare..can't remember, if I have time I'll drive by there today to see... whatever it was, I was surprised. Of course, Cton is a small town so I'm sure the current owners know the history.

Not sure where the current Pike house is. When I was there it was a loong way from campus on the hwy coming from I-20..can't remember the name since I come a different direction.

Univ of Ga. AGD House

The beautiful AGD house is in the shape of a wedding cake..or used to be until remodeling. The house was a gift from a dad to his engaged daughter. I think the story does that fiance died and she killed herself in one of the rooms. There seems to be strange voices and happenings at time..I think her name is Susie.

Sisters who live in the room tend to get engaged while living in the room.. An UGA AGD might want to provide better details..
