I woke up in my dorm room it was around Two am. I could not fall asleep I watched my roommate who was fast asleep his name was tom and my name was Justin.

 The dorm was silent. Except I heard some footsteps down the hall. Now this was a college so I figured it was either another student going to the bathroom or security so no reason to panic. I noticed the footsteps stopped right near our door. I turned around to face the wall and went back asleep.
 The next morning I asked tom if he heard the footsteps? He said No. so we went about our day. That night I woke up again around two a.m. To the sound of footsteps. This time I got up from bed and whispered to tom who responded with "what?" I told him to listen. As we heard the footsteps again and this time they stopped again near our door. "Security maybe?" Tom said to me. 
We went back to sleep. The next day I asked Marcus the head of security if he or another member of security walked down our dormitory around 2 am? Marcus informed me that nobody did because him and the schools security were in bed at that hour.
 I got chills. Marcus told me to tell him if it happens again. So that night it was around 2:30 in the morning I woke up to the sound of footsteps again but this time I heard a different sound like the sound of cutting something. Around the hall. I threw my pillow at tom who immediately woke up. I whispered to him there's somebody outside. We turned around to face our door where the footsteps suddenly stopped again. 
A few seconds went bye and our hearts dropped as we saw the door knob begin to twist and turn. Tom immediately jumped out of bed and grabbed the door knob. Whoever was trying to open it gave up fast as we managed to lock the door. For the rest of the night we took shifts watching the door. The next morning after breakfast I told Marcus what happens. 
He made a phone call and that afternoon the school put up a security camera in front of our door so they would see who this person was. And that night the person returned. I was already awake with tom around 2:00 A.M. We heard the footsteps again and heard the sound of cutting. And it stopped right at our door. We than heard a terrifying screaming sound coming right behind our door with the sound of thunderous pounding on our door.
 Me and tom jumped and grabbed the door knob with all our might even though whoever was there wasn't trying to break in this time. After we were sure whatever was there left we waited for the morning.
 Once morning came we immediately ran to "Marcus" the head of security who had access to the security camera. What we saw was terrifying. A women around two a.m. Was in a long white dress similar to a wedding gown and she was walking down the halls with a bloody knife. We saw her twitch.
 And then scream at the door and then stared to pound on the door. But what happened after scared all three of us, the women disappeared into thin air. Marcus reported the video to the principle of the college, who showed it to a nearby church who thought the school may be haunted, because several others reported seeing a women in a wedding gown around 2 am. 
The church did a blessing In our room and they found under one of the floorboards in our dorm bones. They did a blessing and burned the bones. We begged the principle to let us stay in a different dorm. He let us move away from that room and sure enough after that we never saw or heard footsteps at 2:00 am ever again. 
That was until tom came back to the dorm holding a ouija board and said "look what I got" I told him to get rid of it or I would leave the college. I did not ever want to see or hear anything related to the paranormal as long as I lived.
