Campus public safety officials said over the past two weeks they’ve responded to more than nine incidents of bias-related graffiti, some of which involved hate speech.

On Tuesday, a swastika was found drawn in a men’s restroom.

“It’s terrible. It’s terrible," Curry College student Brendan Bedell said. "There's no reason for it. Everyone here should be grown adults... So it’s pretty terrible.”

According to campus security, they have more than 100 cameras on campus and they’ve added three extra cameras near some of the areas where the incidents have taken place.

Milton police say they are adding uniformed and plain clothed police officers to campus in addition to a beefed-up public safety presence.
