Throwback Thursday Halloween Edition
Southwest Hall is Pacific’s Freshman Residential Learning Community and the second largest residence hall—housing 248 students. It stands near the School of Engineering and Computer Science with a history that may raise the hair on the back of your neck. Southwest Hall is known for its definite haunting by the unknown spirits that lurk the building.
It is said that Southwest Hall used to be part of a military operation that was converted into a living area for students when the school first moved to the Stockton campus. The building was actually divided into two parts: South Hall and West Hall. Though in the late 1940s, it was merged into one operating building by the military that was unknown.
The residential hall is known for its abnormally large rooms and for the luxury of having sinks. However, those that live there shouldn’t be too happy about the sinks. Don’t those rusty and squeaky sinks have a prison-feel to them? Or, perhaps you may not be the only one in the room.
Well the next time you hear a knock at the door, don’t entirely expect someone to be standing there at your doorway.
