Abstract: Old Build­ings, New Myths: A Vir­tu­al Ghost Walk Tour Through the U of S Cam­pus
The Diefen­bak­er Cana­da Cen­tre has adapt­ed their award win­ning Ghost Tours into a vir­tu­al pre­sen­ta­tion. The Ghost Tours were cre­at­ed in part­ner­ship with U of S Alum­ni aimed at attract­ing alum­ni back to cam­pus. Octo­ber 2015 marked the 3rd con­sec­u­tive year and a record break­ing num­ber of atten­dees. The talk will con­sist of a vir­tu­al walk through of cen­tral cam­pus with an in-depth look into the lore and myths of the University’s most haunt­ed and infa­mous build­ings.
