ATLANTA (AP) — Swastika symbols on two Georgia university campuses have students and parents on edge.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that swastikas were drawn on message boards recently in Creswell and Russell halls at the University of Georgia.
Two students at Georgia College & State University in Milledgeville also reported to campus officials that a swastika was drawn on the doors of their residence hall recently.
The incidents come as hate crimes are on the rise on campuses across the nation.
Federal officials in October found that religious-based hate crime on college campuses has increased significantly nationwide over the past decade.
