Haunted residence to resurrect ghosts of Electa past

A Hallowe’en tour through the basement of Electa Hall will draw on the building’s haunted history, says organizer Michael Dasilva, a resident assistant.

“We are trying to make it more traditional,” says the second-year law student. “We are basing it a lot on its former use as a nunnery and all the legends of Electa Hall.”

The event runs 7 to 11 p.m. on Monday, October 29, and will feature student volunteers enacting scenes of terror—although the presentation can be tamed for younger patrons.

Admission is by a suggested donation of $2 or a canned good, with proceeds supporting local food banks and the Canadian Cancer Society.
