U Of I Employee Reports Blue Swastika Found On Building

A drawing of a blue swastika was found outside the wall of a University of Illinois building.

University of Illinois police said on Tuesday an employee reported a drawing of a swastika outside of the English building on Wright Street around 4 p.m.

The graffiti was then quickly removed.

“We need the most positive environment as much as possible so it's just like really disheartening that someone is going around to our buildings, and we pay tuition to go here and to have buildings that we feel safe in,” sophomore at the University, Kaylee Bastien said.

Police are still investigating the vandalism.
