The school grounds did not escape such tales and if you would ask students, it seems that every school campus has their own taste of supernatural and paranormal phenomena.
This article is a continuation of the post on the most haunted schools in the Philippines.
Doppelganger activities also persist within the campus. One famous story is about three female students who played a prank on another student inside the girl's restroom.
When a girl went inside the toilet cubicle, the three pranksters locked the door and stayed outside the door quietly. The girl inside the cubicle tried to open the door but to no avail. Scared, she started to cry. Thinking that the joke has gone too far, the three pranksters decided to finally open the door.
To their surprise, there was no one inside. They ran outside and then saw the girl whom they played a prank on standing on the veranda. They approached her and asked her how she managed to go outside the toilet cubicle without them noticing. She then said, "I was here all this time."
#3 College of St. Benilde
A well-known ghost tale from this college is about a professor's roll call. During the first day of the school year, a professor was routinely doing a roll call of the students in the classroom. When he finished calling all the names in the list, he noticed that only one student was not called: a girl sitting just in front of the professor's desk.
The students here are told to be wary when entering the restrooms, particularly those on the second and third floors of the Benilde Hall. They tend to avoid using these rooms if possible. However, if you really need to go and use these restrooms, remember to avoid using the first cubicle. The students and faculties would say that a ghost of a girl shows up in that cubicle.
#4 Ateneo De Manila University
People with "gifts" had reportedly saw the ghost of a mother and a child who would walk up to the second floor through the creak wooden stairs or sometimes along the corridors.
On the second floor, the motion-censored cameras seem to detect the presence something moving even if no one is around. They believe that the cameras seem to detect a ghost of a Jesuit priest.
Any Ateneans would like to comment on this?
5. University of the Philippines
The Benitez hall is one of the oldest building of the school and so students and faculties seem to associate a dark atmosphere to these school grounds especially at dusk. Even the caretakers have reported seeing a ghost with blood red eyes who roams and knocks on the door of some rooms.
The Kalayaan Hall, a residential area for freshmen students, is also a place of paranormal activities. Rumor has it that a ghost of a female student roams the area.
They say that a freshman student was raped and died at a secluded grassy area near the Department of the Military Science. the lifeless body was found a day later.
The creepy thing was that the Kalayaan resident assistant at that time claimed that she saw and scolded that same girl because she was going to her room while leaving a trail of water in the hallway. Because the girl just ignored her, she followed her to her room but found no one.
