Mount Marty College earns a spot on the Only In Your State website thanks to the ghosts that apparently drift around Whitby Hall. Open since 1955, if you happen to see an apparition roaming around in gray polyester pants, you're not alone. And who are those guys in blue suits floating along?

And while you're studying hard in the library, you might just notice some apparitions floating around. Yes, ghosts.

Hear footsteps and don't see anyone? Notice those weird shadows over there by the trees? Hmmm...

But there's no reason to be concerned, apparently, these ghosts are of the friendly variety. So while you're getting a great education at Mount Marty, and enjoying one of the most beautiful cities in South Dakota in Yankton, you just might pick up a few new friends you hadn't been counting on!

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
