SONS WATCH

ZACH BROWN Editor-in-Chief

The Sons of Light are at it again, cryptic as ever. For the past two weeks, the secret organization has tweeted out three baffling messages that may point to what they plan to do next on campus.

On April Fool’s Day, the Sons’ Twitter account, @Filii_Lucis, posted simply “Prepare.” The account had been dormant since April 23, 2013.

Tuesday, @Filii_Lucis tweeted twice. Both tweets appear to be small poems or riddles.

The first cryptic tweet was posted on April 1, followed by two poems or riddles on Tuesday, April 8. The last time the account tweeted was during last year’s April scavenger hunt, during which students followed clues to the $1,000 prize. (Photo courtesy of @Filii_Lucis)

Some speculation stirred around the use of the word “Paschal.” “Paschal’s Mystery,” which is referenced in one tweet, is a term generally used to describe the resurrection, celebrated on Easter Sunday.

Last spring, the Sons hosted a campus-wide scavenger hunt. Senior biology major Jeffrey Ferrell and his group won the $1,000 charity prize.

“I have a feeling it’s going to be another scavenger hunt type thing,” Ferrell said. “They’ve only used that Twitter account when they were doing the scavenger hunt.”

The Sons of Light is the secret group on campus that hung wreathes on the Library in December. In past years, the shadowy organization has also sent roses to all female residents on Valentine’s Day and put out lawn flamingoes on the Quad.

The Crimson has reached out to the Sons via email, but has not received comment back.
