As a recent Witt graduate, I may be able to offer a little bit of insight. The shifters do have a root in Winnie the Pooh, this has been confirmed,
and if you enter the bedroom of almost any shifter you will see a Winnie the Pooh character. Apparently there are two people tapped to be each pooh
"character" each semester. There are many staff members who are shifters (Dr. Hasecke is one... last semester he was seen out and about with all
the student shifters at night, he also spent 15 minutes of one of our classes talking about the history of the thumbs up, while students practically
begged him to stop). The shifters walk around campus singing songs etc. A major theme within them is death and rebirth (one night a semester they
bring boomers to the hollow and fake killing them).
Also a member of my fraternity stole a CD with a paperclip on it from the shifter house a few years ago (probably a bad idea on his part). He shared
it with a wide range of people, but it was two techno songs repeating over and over one was the devil singing stating he can "give you sex, drugs and
house" (we have no idea what giving house is). The other song is a song entitled "sex on coc aine" where a woman repeatedly says "do you
know how it feels to # on coc aine? its nice, real nice" and a man in the background repeatedly says "face down, ass up thats the way we like
to #". The shifters are not picked because they are the "nicest" people on campus. In fact, I can think of more shifters who are pricks than
Recently a friend of mine's father got tapped, and he received a production quality DVD which outlines what it is to be a Shifter. He was also told
that he could not participate in fully half of the "hazing" events, nor would he be informed of them because if any of these came to light he would
most certainly lose his job-no ifs, ands or buts. They do indeed have naked parties, and a lot of people in the organization sleep with each other.
A friend described to me during her "pledge" period (after not sleeping for a few days) that she couldn't believe some of the things she had done
to join, though she wouldn't go into any more detail. The shifter house always had its windows veiled so there was no way to ever see in.
Initiation includes a swim at the reservoir, and a swim across buck creek. Though they do have tunnels, they don't use them to get around, they have
more of their ritualistic stuff down there. Whatever they do they do, and if they didn't want this all being posted up here on the internet, they
wouldn't be so public about it!
As for the Wizards, their initiation included orgies and lots of coc aine. Karl's death was not purely alcohol related, there were other drugs
in his system that contributed. Any self respecting person who was on campus when Karl died would not join an organization that killed him. The
Wizards motto is Move over shifters.
From what I've gather the Gnomes are just a drinking club, & I never saw them out running around campus. The Knights are a club for druggies, but
they say they really are for an organization which stands for "chivalry," it was started by some druggies who didn't graduate. The Bells are a
group of theatre geeks, and the pirates are a bunch of wierdos. There are more, most of them are indeed secretive though. What secrets can really be
hidden at Wittenberg University in Springfield, OH? Other than the shifters these clubs seem to be social outlets, just a group of people getting
together, though the shifters seem to do some intensive brainwashing, anyone who has had a friend become one can clearly see a change in the person.
I've heard of a girl defecting from the shifters & telling some of their secrets, and the shifters drove her out of witt. She went to live at home
in Cleveland & they drove from witt (about 3 hours) to her house & harassed her. Only when the FBI got involved did they leave her alone.
