A few different ghost stories surround this college. They include that of a spirit in the chapel, a rumored exorcism at Aquinas Hall and reports of witnesses hearing voices in their heads inside Drexel Hall. Dwenger Hall is also believed to be possessed, and Hallas Hall is rumored to be haunted by the ghost of a baby. Legend also says that inside the theater building, several campus priests hanged themselves after a botched exorcism.

    I am a student at Rensselaer's Schools and I am doing a research project and potentially going there soon. If anyone has anything about the hauntings that have happened here please email me because I would like to know what you know. I will be posting everything I know so far about this place very soon so everyone can know about what really has happened here as well.

  • Black mist in chapel

    I attended SJC for my freshmen year in 2017, before it was closed down in 2018. Definitely spooky at night, surrounded by woods and there was always an uneasy feeling in some places. But overall it was a great school. The only thing that I saw happened in the chapel, we were there late at night just wandering around campus. It was very dark in the chapel, but we saw a black mist appear near the alter, and it rose to the cross on the wall and completely covered it. Very creepy

  • Aquinas Hall

    The haunting happened in 1969--1970 when seminarians were messing with weggie board. I heard from them the weird stuff with the voices and flying ash tray.
