military and veterans program to hold a haunted tour of the Texas Tech campus on October 29 | KLBK | KAMC
LUBBOCK, Texas (PRESS RELEASE) — Here is a press release from Texas Tech University:
The fundraiser dubbed “Frightraiser” will feature stories of paranormal experiences that have happened on campus.
On Friday (October 29), participants can arrive between the Student Union Building and the Library from 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Participants will then depart for a 45-minute tour through campus.
“Our ghost tour invites participants to accompany an investigator carrying a lantern and make their way through campus where they will meet storytellers,” said Garret D. Langlois, the Raider Power Paranormal Advisor.
“Each story is unique, and their sources range from legends passed down between generations of students and still whispered in dorms today, to real-life tragedies that have left a permanent scar on Raiderland,” said Michael Harper, program coordinator for MVP.
General admission is $5 and free for children three and under. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Raider Power of Paranormal.
Sierra Mello-Miles, director of MPV, said the idea of ghost tours for a fundraiser came up during a staff meeting with Harper.
“I was recounting my experiences growing up around college, and ghost stories inevitably arose,” Harper said. “I had heard several stories growing up both as an employee’s child and as a student.”
Mello-Miles said she suggested the ghost tours on the spur of the moment. She contacted the Campus Life Center on the idea and learned about the student organization that held ghost tours during this year’s welcome week.
Raider Power of Paranormal was created in 2019 by three college students with the help of their advisor. Since the beginning of the semester, when the first ghost tours were organized, Raider Power of Paranormal has grown from 14 members to 164.
