Weird animal in my area!! Can't tell what this is?

I was walking to my car this morning headed to college. This animal was behaving really weirdly and was running around me then ran up a tree. It scared the crap out of me. Can anyone SPECIFICALLY tell me what animal this is (genus perhaps?) Friends say it is a racoon but others say its ears and tails heavily differ... show more I was walking to my car this morning headed to college.
