Is Centre College haunted? Maybe! Sara Egge - Claude D. Pottinger Associate Professor of History – argues that Ghosts are central to the Centre experience. They are essential for students, staff, and faculty to connect to Centre College’s past and acknowledge those who built and sustained the mission of the institution.

Telling ghost stories weaves strong community bonds. Some ghost stories entertain us. Others provide insights about the culture of the college and how people have chosen to live, work, and interact with one another within it--and the consequences some have faced. They also reveal “hidden” or marginalized aspects of life at Centre College that encourage sometimes difficult conversations about who we are and what we value.
