miami-ohioTwo first-year male students at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, admitted to writing offensive terms on a bulletin board in a residence hall. The offensive writings included anti-Semitic, anti-women, homophobic, and racial slurs.

David Hodge, president of Miami University, said that the two students would face campus disciplinary action in addition to a legal investigation. “Unfortunately, it seems Miami is not immune from the behaviors that have challenged college campuses across the country,” President Hodge said in an e-mail to the campus community.
