One swastika was "carved into an elevator of a student dormitory," a press release states. Two more were located "painted into the elevator of a second student dormitory on Wednesday night."

The ADL Washington DC Regional Director, Doron Ezickson released the following statementing condemning the graffiti:

"Swastika graffiti has been utilized increasingly to create a climate of fear and intimidation. This racist and anti-Semitic symbol must always be taken seriously, and responded to appropriately. We commend the University's thoughtful and prompt response to this incident, and the efforts of campus police to ensure a thorough investigation."
