Students Get a Clue About Wilson Library

A ghost is haunting Wilson Library, spreading ectoplasm on the precious archival materials and special collections inside.

October 29, the Supernatural Investigation Agency detained six researchers in separate rooms as suspects. One of them was the messy ghost, but which one?

Was it gruff Col. Mustard? Eccentric Mrs. Peacock? Perspicacious Professor Plum? Frightened Mrs. White? Knowing Mr. Green? Or haughty Miss Scarlett?

The SIA recruited 16 student teams to help, but the clock is ticking. They have only 90 minutes to find the evidence, interrogate the suspects and make an indictment.

But there’s a twist to this whole investigation. A ghost isn’t really haunting the library. The elaborate scenario is just a way to lure students into the beautiful but formidable building and introduce them to the fascinating recordings, documents, books and photographs inside.
