The Rio Grande campus will be holding the annual Ghost Tours on Oct. 25.
The Rio Grande Campus is in downtown El Paso, the epicenter of the cities alleged hauntings.
The Rio Grande Campus was the first permanent facility for EPCC. When it was built it was just one building on
Rio Grande Street in 1975.
The downtown campus is surrounded by other famous haunted buildings in the downtown area like Loretto Academy, a Catholic school that people claim is haunted by a nun that committed suicide, El Paso High, which is rumored to be the most haunted location in the city, the De Soto Hotel where guests claim to have been touched by spirits, and the Plaza Theatre where lights seem to turn on by themselves.
Downtown is also allegedly home to a network of underground tunnels, used to transport migrants around the city.
The Ghost Tour will feature three different types of tours. A kid-friendly version, which will be available at 7 pm.
Children 10 years old and younger will have free admission.
Tours for those 10 years old and older will be available at 8, 9 and 10:30 pm. There is also a midnight tour recommend for those looking for a scare.
If you are not a current EPCC student, admission is $5. All proceeds will go to the EPCC Student Fund, which is used to scholarships.
Admission is on a first come, first serve basis, and you can reserve a ghost tour pass by calling (915) 831-5034.
