But how would you know how creepy the part that is broken into is? One would hope you did not do the breaking-into.

I must admit, that you caught me.

I do not know exactly how creepy that part is, having never been there, I can only say that looking through the gate looks creepy...

Well I know for a fact that someone from this forum has been in that area of hoyt basement. They were denied access and still managed to get in, with the help of an accomplice. They managed to discover the area of many recycle bins. Though no one else has ever seen these bins, and are generally considered to be a myth.

Default Back in the day

There used to be a Civil Defense fallout shelter kit down in Hoyt basement. Water cans, survival crackers in metal tins, medical supplies, and a book on how to provide medical care to those who had been hurt by the nuclear destruction. A lot of the instructions involved giving people the phenobarbital that was in the kit so they would be peaceful and not disturb the other shelter residents.

I'm pretty sure that stuff's not there anymore. There were a few fallout shelters on campus--it'd be interesting to track them down again.

The (roughly west) side of the Hoyt basement on the right (past where the boiler is) used to be the air rifle club range. Disbanded sometime around 1987. They were still listed as a club, so the Yearbook still had a picture scheduled. A bunch of students who played laser tag in various buildings showed up for the picture instead - not sure what year it was. Sometime around 1988/89/90, I think.

Does anyone know the "story" of the Hoyt ghost? I can never remember if she hung herself, or if she was the victim of a homicide...
The only detail I can clearly recall is it was because of an encounter from one of the Navy guys living in Hoyt during WWII....
