Swastika graffiti found at Northeastern University; president calls it 'hateful' act

The president of Northeastern University is reacting angrily to the discovery of swastikas on campus.

The Nazi symbol was found drawn on a dry-erase board in the common space of the International Village dorm at around 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

President Joseph Aoun (AH'-oon) said in an email to the campus community that "these actions are completely antithetical to the values of our university and all that we stand for."

He called it a hateful act of anti-Semitism.

Campus police are investigating.

Northeastern dealt with a similar incident in November when swastikas were drawn on fliers publicizing a lecture by an Israeli military official.
