Ghost hunting class set

Continuing Education at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette offers a course that studies a practical approach to paranormal investigating.

Students will learn the proper methods of obtaining evidence, what types of evidence to collect and how to debunk events that have logical explanations.

Louisiana Spirits Paranormal investigators will take students through three sessions.

The first meeting will be a classroom presentation.

A hands-on investigation of a reportedly “haunted” location will take place in the second session.

A third meeting will be used to analyze and discuss findings.

The course will be held Thursday through Sunday at a cost of $69.
