Do you believe in ghosts? If not, Drew University, located in Madison, NJ just might be able to change your opinion! Located ideally 15 miles as the crow flies from Times Square New York, the small Liberal Arts, Graduate, and Theological University attracts many, ever since the university’s establishment in 1867. Drew, nicknamed “The Forest,” was recently prestigiously ranked 5th best university in the state by USA Today, while also taking the coveted ranking as the 4th most haunted university in America, according to multiple sources.
The University’s haunts go as far back as the wife’s founder, Roxanna Mead Drew, who continues to roam the halls of her 1837 estate. An account of one of her spine tingling sightings is from the 1989 fire of the historic Mead Hall on Drew’s campus.
