Swastikas at 3 Student Residences at Stanford

April 28, 2015

Stanford University authorities are investigating and condemning the spray painting of swastikas and anarchy symbols on three student residences at the university. The three houses -- a co-op, Casa Italiana and the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity -- likely have or had some Jewish residents over the years, but are not identified as Jewish institutions or notably popular with Jewish students. Stanford President John Hennessy issued a statement in which he said in part: "I am deeply troubled by the act of vandalism, including symbols of hate, that has marred our campus. The university will not tolerate hate crimes and this incident will be fully investigated, both by campus police and by the university."
