Happy Halloween From Park University

At Park University, we are excited about several of the more obvious holidays that fit our institutional ethos – Veterans Day, Memorial Day, (Fides Et) Labor Day – but we are equally as excited about the celebration of Halloween. Not necessarily for the costume contests our staff and students take part in, or for the safe Trick-or-Treat experience that we offer Parkville-area families in Fright Night, but because of the many great ghost stories that surround our campus.

We were recently named one of the 20 Paranormal Places in Missouri You Must See Before You Die, and a number of years ago, KMBC 9‘s Larry Moore profiled two of the more prominent ghost stories, talking about the spirits that inhabit the Park University Observatory above Mackay Hall and taking a look inside of Mackay itself for the ghost of Pauline Hawley, wife of former president Frederick Hawley.

And most recently, Jennifer Sprague was interviewed for a podcast in which she talked about other paranormal activity at Park University.

We will leave you with the feature packages below, and Happy Haunting!
