SGRA was contacted by researchers working on a new series set to air on SyFy called “School Spirits,” which (as if you couldn’t tell by the title) is going to focus on ghostly stories related to campuses throughout the United States. The producers say that the show will aim to share true ghost experiences through the testimonial of students, faculty, staff, and others involved. This week we were contacted by researchers for the show who were interested in the work we’ve done digging in to the haunted history of Yale University, and some of the stories we share during our “Secrets of New Haven Tours” given throughout the Summer and Fall seasons.
Because the show sounds like it is taking a decent perspective on the ghost phenomena – not like many other shows that want to embellish or push up the “fright factor” of the experiences – we have agreed to help gather stories by inviting our viewers who have participated in our tours, or shared their Yale stories with us, to contact us for details on how your experiences can be shared with the producers of “School Spirits.” Currently, the show is looking to focus on Yale’s campus, however if you have a story from another Connecticut campus we invite you to contact us as well as we will help put you in touch with them, as they will be looking at story ideas for future episodes. For more information feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (203)987-SGRA. Please note that you will need to provide at least one method of contacting you for the producers, as they won’t have much use for testimony and stories that are not submitted anonymously.
