October 25, 2016

 “One day in the counselors building a girl was screaming on the elevator, some students tried to help her, but the door was locked. She was totally trapped in there. People were worried about her so they called the police," said Elisa Barcenas, a student at EPCC. 

 "The girl was crying for help, but when the door opened no one was there.” 

This is a famous story that goes around the Rio Grande campus. 

This EPCC campus is known for having some creepy stories that may surprise you, but are you brave enough to experience it yourself? 

Rio Grande will be doing a special tour around the school while telling most of the surprising stories that have happened on the campus.

“Many things happen here on the campus. On one of the corners of the cafeteria a man playing with a knife appears after midnight and there are many people who have quit their jobs because of him. It’s not a friendly spirit and they just do not mess with him,” said Barcenas.

Is another of the popular stories from the campus.


There are many students that have awesome testimonies about what happens on the campus. 

“One day I came to school very early in the morning and I saw a shadow on the second floor. I thought it could be a kid, but when I looked to see where the shadow went I just couldn’t find it. I told a security officer about this and he told me ‘Jimmy was just messing around with you’. I was totally shocked when I heard that,” said Jose Mora, a student at EPCC Rio Grande.
