Swastikas Drawn in Dorm at Northeastern Univ.; NU Pres. Rebukes "Hateful Act" as Unacceptable

Swastikas were drawn on a dormitory board at Northeastern University's main campus in Boston, the JTA (Jewish Telegraphic Agency) website reports today (March 31, 2015).

The swastikas were discovered on March 29 in a common area in the International Village dorm.

Northeastern's president, Joseph Aoun, condemned what he called a "hateful act" in a statement that was emailed to students and staff, as well as posted on the university's website.

"These actions are completely antithetical to the values of our university and all that we stand for," Aoun wrote. "Bias, hate crimes, and anti-Semitism are completely unacceptable -- whether they occur on our campus, or anywhere else." Campus police are investigating.
