Two students at a Northern California university scrawled swastikas and other hate speech in residence halls, the campus president said Thursday.
The swastikas were found Tuesday at two separate dormitories that mostly house first-year students at San Jose State University.
In the first incident, one of the students took name tags from doors, and post-it notes and formed a swastika on a door in a public area in Washburn Hall. He allegedly wrote an antisemitic message, and posted a photo of it on Snapchat.
Next to one of the swastikas was scrawled “Admit One Jew,” President Mary Papazian said in a statement emailed to all students Thursday. She said police have identified the student responsible and “determined that this act, while bias-based, targeted no one in particular and is not by definition a hate crime.”
