‘Real Ghostbusting 101’ starts Thursday at DSC

Beginning Thursday evening, Dalton State College offers a class that is everything you always wanted to know about ghosts and ghost hunting but were too afraid to ask.

Experienced paranormal investigators Connie Scott and Drew Hester will lead students on a journey of a lifetime, or is that after-lifetime? “Students of ‘Real Ghostbusting 101’ will explore theories about what a ghost is and why an entity sticks around among the living,” says program coordinator Kelly Snyder. “They’ll also study the history of ghost hunting, orbs, ectoplasms, and white noise and the question of what makes a ghost ‘good’ or ‘bad.’”

Hester, a parapsychologist who has hunted with some of the biggest names in the business, will share tools of the ghost hunting trade, Snyder said. Students will learn to use various types of equipment used in paranormal investigations and theories on ghost photography. Scott, a ghost guide, published writer on the paranormal and researcher, and Hester will discuss the scientific approach to ghost hunting. Students will participate in an actual in-the-field ghost hunt and conduct a post-investigation follow-up.

The class meets Thursday evenings and one Saturday from Jan. 22 to Feb. 12. Those interested can register online at www.daltonstate.edu/cce (click on Personal Growth) or call the Center for Continuing Education at (706) 272-4454. Interested ghost hunters are encouraged to register soon; only a few slots remain for this popular class.
