Want to Be a Ghost Hunter?

Contributed by Anne Woodard on 03/12/2008 

In the spirit(s) of good fun and enjoyment of the current popularity of ghost hunting, we are pleased to announce the addition of a Ghost Hunting 101 course and ghost hunt at one of this area's most haunted inns as one of the items up for bid at the sixth annual Bursar's Benefit Auction!

Take yourself and three friends and learn all about this exciting field, so that you can dazzle your friends with your knowledge on the subject at your next family gathering or club meeting -- or perhaps figure out why that chair always creaks at 3:31 a.m. every night!

Rather go for something more traditional? Fear not. We have other interesting items to bid on as well!

Over the next two years, Professor Keller and his students will use spectra from the infrared space telescope to study the light emitted from dust and complex organic molecules that orbit very young stars.
