Police charged two students in connection with offensive graffiti discovered over the weekend on a residence hall bulletin board at Miami University.
A spokeswoman for the university in Oxford, Ohio, declined to describe what the defaced bulletin board said, but she said the content was “offensive to many groups of people,” reported the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Students said the graffiti, which was discovered in Wells Hall, contained racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, and homophobic statements.
“There are people in our hall that were offended by the comments and it affected them personally,” said Shannon Reilly, a first-year student who lives in the building.
The graffiti was discovered after students returned from spring break at the all-freshman residence hall.
Similar graffiti was found at two off-campus fraternity houses at the university, but Miami officials said they don’t believe the incidents are connected.
“I am deeply disappointed that any of our students would choose deliberately to behave in such a reprehensible way, and with so obvious an intent to offend or hurt,” said university president David Hodge in a statement.
The students, who have not yet been identified, also face university discipline.

Trump wants Americans to watch interview where he broke federal law by soliciting foreign election help: ‘Enjoy the show!’
Despite widespread criticism, President Donald Trump on Saturday stood by his comments to George Stephanopoulos -- and hyped an upcoming broadcast of the interview.
"I enjoyed my interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC News," Trump claimed.
"So funny to watch the Fake News Media try to dissect and distort every word in as negative a way as possible. It will be aired on Sunday night at 8:00 P.M., and is called, “President Trump: 30 Hours” (which is somewhat misleading in that I personally spent only a small fraction of that time doing interviews. I do have a few other things to do, you know!)," he continued.
