Ohio University’s Athens main campus is said to be one of the most haunted schools in the world. It's most known for Wilson Hall’s room 428.
The building is allegedly located in the middle of an immense pentagram consisting of five cemeteries situated in the region. It is believed this dorm sits on a graveyard.
In the 1970s, a female occupant started behaving oddly. The student began talking in a strange tongue but before her friends could help her, the girl plummeted to her death from a window. At the time, she was reportedly practicing the occult. After her death, students reported strange phenomena surrounding this room-- footsteps, unexplained voices and flying objects. Some people claim to have seen this female's ghost. The room has been sealed shut. The university deemed it uninhabitable.
Elsewhere on campus is what’s left of The Ridges, a development that was formerly a local psychiatric hospital called Athens Lunatic Asylum. The Ridges housed nearly 2,000 patients, over three times its capacity. Patients were restrained for days at a time, crowded in rooms meant for one and beaten by the hospital staff.
