Paranormal researcher to lecture, lead students on campus ghost hunt


The first 40 people to arrive at paranormal researcher Chris Fleming's lecture will have the opportunity to hunt for ghosts around campus with him following the event. 

The event is scheduled for 8 p.m. Oct. 26 in Plachta Auditorium and is presented by Central Michigan University's Program Board. 

Fleming will begin with an hour-long presentation about his interactions with ghosts and his experiences on various TV programs. Fleming has been featured on "Ghost Hunters," "Ghost Adventures" and "Scariest Places on Earth." 

The hour-long ghost hunt will take place after the lecture. 

Attendees are encouraged to bring cameras and phones to record anything that happens during the ghost hunt, said Olivia Franklin, Program Board's special events director. Fleming will teach participants how to use flashlights to hunt for ghosts.

Franklin believed Fleming would be a great speaker to bring to campus for Halloween. She expects the event to be popular among students, as Fleming came to CMU three years ago and drew a crowd of more than 300 students. 

The event is free and open to the public.
