Founded in 1848 and with a current student body of only 1200 students, Chowan University is known for its united atmosphere and its athletic record. What the school is also known for, however, is its long history of paranormal disturbances. Its Music Hall is haunted by a piano-playing ghost, while the second floor of Mixon Hall is haunted by the ghost of a student who hanged himself. Belks Hall is haunted by both a student who committed suicide and a screaming/laughing little girl who rode her tricycle down the stairs.

The “Brown Lady” is perhaps the most disturbing and famous apparition that haunts the school. Lingering on the third floor of the Columns Building, her footsteps have been heard, leading to brief chases by security guards suspecting unauthorized students.

  • OH THE HAUNTED IS REAL!!!!

    I ATTENDED CHOWAN UNIVERSITY FROM THE YEARS ONF 2007-2011 AND EXPERIENCED ALL THE HAUNTED THINGS THERE CAN BE. HAVE I SEEN THE BROWN LADY, NO BUT I HAVE WITNESSED A LOT. I HAVE WITNESSED LIVING IN BELK HALL 3RD FLOOR, KNOCKING ON MY DOOR AT ABOUT 3 OR 4 AM AND WHEN I LOOK UNDER THE DOOR I STILL HEAR KNOCKING BUT NO SIGN OF FEET. ALSO I HAVE HEARD TRICYCLE BELLS RINGING THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT AS A LOUD KNOCK IS ON THE DOOR. LIVING IN MIXON HALL I HAVE WITNESS MY ROOM DROPPING TEMPERATURES AND HEARING EVERYTHING AROUND ME BUT COULD NOT REACT AS I FELT SOMEONE HOLDING ME DOWN . I HAVE SEEN DARK IMAGES ACROSS CAMPUS WHEN IT IS LATE AT NIGHT AROUND THE COLUMNS BUILDING WHICH COULD POSSIBLY BE THE INFAMOUS BROWN LADY. IT WAS SO MUCH TO WITNESS AND TO ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT THE HAUNTED THINGS I HAVE HEARD WAS REAL.

  • Dunn Hall

    I attended Chowan for only a semester and had 3 separate encounters during my duration back in 2011. First being, my roommate and I at the same time in the middle of the night had a nice overwhelming feeling that someone was hovering over the top of us. The temperature in our room became low enough for us to see our breath. This lasted for about 10 minutes until the feeling went away and temperature went back to normal. We felt the exact same change at the same time. Second, a friend that stayed down the hall was supposed to come over to the other side of the hall where our room was. We gave him about 20 minutes and went to his room to see where he was. We opened his dorm door to find him in shock in his bed. He said as he walked out of his door to come to our room, he started to walk down the hallway and a little girl was riding a tricycle. He stopped to watch and the girl rode right through the wall and disappeared. He was so scared he ran back into his room where we found him. Third, my roommate and I woke up around 2 in the morning to a guy screaming bloody murder. I had actually never heard a guy scream this way before. The large majority of the hall poked their heads out to see what had happened. We started to walk around to see if everyone was okay and heard noise coming from the bathroom. We made it to the last stall door and a guy was sitting with this feet up on the toilet staring straight ahead with a blank stare. It took us a few minutes to calm him down to tell us what happened. He said he woke up to take a crap and after a few minutes the lights started to flicker. Then the stall doors started to shake. Then his stall door flung open and an alll blacked out figure with a top hot was standing in front of the door which was when he screamed. The door shut and all the lights turned off and we found him in the same spot.
