WKU has no shortage of traditions...

Among the most popular stories told about the history of WKU are our vivid ghost stories.  Passed down through the years, some of these stories are sad tales of lives lost too soon, while some are mere speculative superstitions or campus sightings of spirits.  Whatever your belief, these stories are sure to catch your eye, if not your imagination.

We hope you will visit the complete bibliography of published works written about WKU's many Ghost Stories.  Visit the WKU Kentucky Library and Museum and University Archives for more information.
