With the Halloween season upon us, there’s no better time to gain educational experience with the paranormal and the unexplained.

Now that opportunity is possible thanks to a course being taught at both the Chillicothe and Southern (Ironton) branches of Ohio University. You do not have to be a student at the universities to attend, the course is open to the general public.

The Paranormal Mysteries course, taught by Instructor Todd Martin, a local musician with life-long interest with the unexplained, will be taught this October.

Martin has successfully offered this course two times prior at the Southern branch of Ohio University and at the Journey Within bookstore in Portsmouth.

“The class can viewed as a guided discussion into popular topics in the paranormal field,” explained Martin. “Students will be polled informally, and if they have specific interests- we will try to address them during the class meetings. The class shouldn’t be thought of solely as a ‘ghost hunting,’ although we will plan to devote a good deal of time to the topic at the last class meeting. No tests will be given in the class, note taking is encouraged, but recording is not.”

The general public is encouraged to attend the Community Education course, please call the University to register.

The class will be offered at the Chillicothe branch of Ohio University on Monday evenings in October from 7 to 9 p.m.

Class meetings take place on Oct 3 10,17 and 24.

Please call 740-774-7226 to register.

The class will be offered at the Southern branch of Ohio University on Tuesday evenings in October from 7 to 9 p.m.

Class meetings will be on Oct 4, 11, 18 and 25. To register, call 740-533-4600.

You can also register through the University website. Visit, www.ohio.edu/southern for the Southern branch and www.ohio.edu/chillicothe for the Chillicothe branch.

“If anyone has an interest in the unexplained mysteries of the universe, a curiosity about what goes ‘bump in the night’, or just simply thinks that there must be more to this world than what we see, I encourage you to come and check it out,” said Martin.
