Dietz doesn't have any formal ghost stories, but on September 8th, 1936, workmen found a truck full of dismembered, headless skeletons buried 8 inches below the surface, on the Hartman Green side of Dietz. The workers were obviously shocked, but upon further inquiry, the Biology department reluctantly acknowledged that their Anatomy division used to dissect cadavers in their lab on the 3rd floor of Stager, and these were concluded to be bodies they did not dispose of in a proper manner. The absence of heads was puzzling, but the Student Weeklyreminded its readers that many fraternities harbored skulls in their cellars (presumably as conversation pieces). No students have reported ghostly incidents in Dietz-Santee hall. Yet.
