‘Midnight and graves and weirdness’: Order of Gimghoul’s initiation rituals uncovered

The Order of Gimghoul is a secret, invitation-only society for male students and faculty of the University that was founded in 1889 by five students. Materials from the Order's collection that are at least 50 years old are open to the public — and on Feb. 12, UNC sophomore Hanna Berg posted pages of the Order's initiation rituals to a student meme Facebook group. Berg's decision to upload the pages followed a speech she gave about the Order at a Dialectic and Philanthropic Societies meeting. After she gave the speech, she received a letter stating, “LOOK NO FURTHER."
