The reason that the Shifters seem so shady is that they actually have some power. Isn't President Erikson a Shifter? Many professors are, people in
the physical plant are, and some of the faculty are as well. Because they have members working in the physical plant and on maintenance, they have
access to every single door on campus. Including dorms. Yea. Doesn't that sound shady?
My friend once told me that her roommate turned down a Shifter tap and they came back to find that some of her stuff was missing and paperclips were
The Wizards were apparently formed by a couple of people who were kicked out of the Shifters and were disgruntled. That is of course just what I've
heard. I DO know FOR A FACT, that KDs are not allowed to be Shifters or Wizards. And that's their rules, not Kappa Delta's. I don't know
specifically what happened, but I was told that KDs put sisterhood before the secret societies and that didn't go over too well. Again, that's just
what i've heard, but KDs are never tapped for either of those societies.
And the new society, the Kings, was formed by some disgruntled Wizards. The Wizards initiation party was, as everyone who has recently gone to Witt
SHOULD know, the cause of Karl's death two years ago. He blacked out completely from drinking too much, the Wizards tossed him back in his room
without leaving someone to stay with him and make sure that he was alright. His frat brothers found him dead in his room the next morning. That's why
you didn't see the Wizards around campus at all last year.
Let's see... what else do I know about our secret societies... How about flair?
Wizards- rainbow ribbon
Kings- we've yet to see this one....
Knights- plastic sandwich swords
Gnomes- painted roach clips
The Village- a ducttape tag with a barcode on it
The Pirates- metal design
Bells- a bell (how original)
there's also a group that wears beer bottle caps, haven't connected a name with that one yet
there's one that wears a yellow smiley face and if you ask them about it they smile, shake your hand and say "Hi I'm Tom". also don't know what
that one is
Am I forgetting any? Most of the secret societies at Witt are just drinking or smoking clubs that have closed parties. I'm convinced that the
Shifters are the only ones that could actually count as a secret society. If you ask me, it's all really lame, but really interesting to gather
information on. There are some caves in Ferncliff cemetery that are supposed to connect with the tunnels, but I haven't found them yet. I've found a
lot of beer cans though... There are a bunch of Wizard markings (the triangle with the two lines through it and three dots in the center) and boxes
for electric candles up on Bong Hill (the hill behind the art building near Cliff Park).
... I think that that's everything I know. Good luck on your story. It might actually make me read the Torch.
OH! Talk to the Chief of Witt Police. He knows a LOT about them and supposedly doesn't like them.
