Some believe that the NSU Seminary Hall is haunted. There have been strange reports of photographed orbs, puzzling sounds and odd smells. Others claim to have seen a female ghost wearing either a black uniform or white wedding gown. Some believe it is the ghost of Florence Wilson, a principal who spent 26 years at the Cherokee National Female Seminary. Wilson's fiancee, Pleasant Buchanan, was thought to have perished in the Civil War, and Wilson never married. Some believe she never left the school.

It's Wilson Hall that is haunted. I lived there in 1993-1994. I saw Florence down a hallway with an all black dress. I was on the softball team and during the week of Spring Break, I experienced loud partying sounds.... Loud music, people running up and down the halls, lots of people laughing and talking when I was the only person with a key in the whole dorm. I was leaving the next morning for a tournament. I still get chills thinking about it. I opened the door and the hall was empty. As soon as I closed the door, the sounds of partying continued. I didn't sleep all night long. I was so scared! I could go on and on with other experiences. I never believed in ghosts until I witnessed it myself living at that dorm.

I think you are confusing ghost stories. Florence Wilson has been said to haunt Wilson Hall, the dormitory located Northwest of Seminary Hall. I used to live in that dorm.
