FBI to help Salisbury University after racist graffiti found

SALISBURY, Md. – Salisbury University students have found vandalism with racist messages on campus once again. On Wednesday, students saw racist graffiti in Henson Hall. Later on Wednesday evening, students found a second area with racist graffiti, in a separate location on campus.

The university did release a statement earlier saying in part, “Since the events in November, they’ve increased security and cameras on campus.” On Wednesday night, the university held a press conference, where they announced classes would be canceled on Thursday.

Some students tell 47ABC, they’re happy with the changes the school has made since similar incidents happened in October and November. But, they’re disappointed to be faced with this issue yet again.

“It was shocking, although it was shocking, it’s kind of not surprising, honestly, I’m hurt,” Dalencia Jenkins, a junior at the university, said.

The University says the police have determined no immediate or specific threat to the campus or the surrounding community.

The FBI is assisting the University in this investigation.
