Many people died in this location, whether oppressively or naturally. But the authenticity of these rumors are very difficult to verify.
- It was a little after the mid-term, when a Junior fell out a third floor window and died. She was trying to sneak out of the dorms while evading the house mother's watch to go out and celebrate the end of the mid terms.
