Harmonious chants echoed from the underground sewer systems of Kennesaw State University in the late evening hours of Sunday, March 1 after a Sentinel staff member stumbled across voices coming from a drainage grate at the south Student Center faculty parking lot.
Sentinel photo editor, Matthew Boggs, was walking across a seemingly vacant campus parking lot when he heard voices coming from beneath him.
“I was walking across campus on a night photo-walk when I thought I heard voices coming from behind me. I turned around and there was no one there,” said Boggs. “I realized it was coming from the drain and I first thought it was echoing from somewhere else, but then I saw a cellphone underneath the drain grate and I knew people were down there. It sounded like chanting and it was very unnerving.”
In the video evidence captured by Boggs, the voices appear to recite names in unison: “Anthony Pelzer Wagener, Theodore Barnwell Kelly, James Fogarty…”
According to the Pi Kappa Phi alumni association’s website, the names being recited are those of the founding fathers of the fraternity.
A KSU Pi Kappa Phi chapter member confirmed on Monday via telephone call that it was in fact Pi Kappa Phi in the video, but offers no further comment on the events that took place that evening.
The Sentinel will follow up with more information as it comes.
