Adelaide Davis, class of '61, is the current director of Alumni Relations. She works in Burwell Hall which is said to be haunted by the ghost of Margaret Anna Burwell, the wife of the university's first president.

Not long ago, two of our listeners wrote in wondering about paranormal hotspots in the Charlotte area. Does Charlotte have local ghosts? Is the city haunted by the supernatural? According to some students and longtime faculty at Queens University, the answer might be yes.

Several buildings on the historic campus in Charlotte's Myers Park neighborhood are said to have resident spirits, enough that every year, the school hosts a campus-wide ghost tour.

This week on FAQ City, we'll go inside some of the campus's creepiest spots and learn their stories. Plus, a possible ghostly encounter is caught on tape...
