Swastika, racist messages reported at Drake University

Posted: Updated:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Drake University administrators say someone carved a swastika into a campus elevator and left a racist message outside an African-American student's dorm room over the weekend.

The Des Moines Register reports that the message was left on a whiteboard on the door of a first-year student. Drake University President Marty Martin called the vandalism "cowardly" Sunday in an email to students and says the markings have been removed.

Martin encouraged anyone with information about the vandalism to report it.
