Marymount College of Fordham University - Tarrytown,New York

The ghosts of founders Father Gailhac and Mother Butler roam the halls of
the dorms and protect the girls of this women's college.  Evil
spirits lurk in Sacky parking lot, left behind when the Sacky House was
torn down before the college was built in 1907.  Most haunted
dorms:  Gailhac Hall and Gerard Hall.  Strange phenomenon
exist in these halls from invisible bed guests to bed shaking and the
constant feeling of being watched.  Beware students and stay far
away from Ouija Boards.

Marymount College has been closed in May 2007.

Neat trick on Fr. Gailhac's part if he found his way to Tarrytown. He died before the college was founded and wasn't in on the planning of the college. He knew nothing about it. His role was as Founder of the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary in Beziers, France. Mother Butler is buried in the crypt of the now Marymount Convent. In my years at Marymount, I can't say I ever met her wandering around, but I know she was very much loved by students who knew her when she was alive.

Regarding "Sacky House", the information is really messed up. Sacre Coeur Hall stood on the site of the "Sacky Parking Lot" until after 1970, so it was very much a part of the college and was not torn down before the college was founded. I know. I lived in it as a student. It was NEVER called "Sacky House". It was Sacre Coeur Hall or "Sacky". It was one of our favorite dorms because it was a nice old mansion with turrets and a wide veranda with a view of the Hudson River. Haunted? I doubt it. In any case, if there are "spirits" slouching around the parking lot, they're benevolent ones. Sorry to burst your bubble, but Marymount was a fine old college that provided a wonderful education to generations of young women. It's not haunted.
