Rich Robbins, associate dean of the College of Arts & Sciences at Bucknell University, will give his annual "Ghosts and Hauntings: Decide for Yourself" presentation on Tuesday, Oct. 25, at 7 p.m. in Trout Auditorium, located inside the Vaughan Literature Building on the Bucknell campus. This event is free and open to the public.

Robbins will introduce theories of what ghosts and other related phenomena are, offer a discussion of evidence for and against the existence of ghosts — including alleged ghost photos and examples of electronic voice phenomena — and provide an introduction to ghost hunting and identification of local "hot spots."

A native of Bloomsburg, Pa., Robbins has been giving this presentation at Bucknell each year since 2008 prior to Halloween. He holds a bachelor's degree in psychology from Bloomsburg, a master's in experimental psychology from West Chester and a doctorate in social psychology from Nevada-Reno. In addition to his career in higher education administration and adjunct teaching of the past 16 years, Robbins also is a certified parapsychologist who has participated in several ghost hunts, consulted on books about haunting and has given several interviews in the media regarding those subjects.
