It’s gone so far as students needing special counseling and support to soothe their fears over seeing “Trump 2016” written in chalk on their university campuses. Emboldened by their reaction, students in support of Trump have taken up the cause on other campuses across the country, building walls and chalking Trump’s message everywhere.
College Reform has formulated a list of some universities where all the Trump action has occurred:
Barry University, FL – Administrators deemed Donald Trump’s campaign rhetoric antithetical to the school’s values, and responded by banning the golf team from practicing at the world-class Trump Doral course.
Ohio University, OH – National Greek life organizations cancelled several “Greek Week” events after learning that some fraternity and/or sorority members had written pro-Trump slogans on a Free Speech Wall.
University of Michigan, MI – Students called campus police to report “hateful” Trump chalkings, inspiring a “chalk war” the following week. Student Government resolved to make campus a “safe space” for immigrant students, and the school’s president issued a statement condemning the Trump chalkings.
DePaul University, IL – In response to Trump-inspired chalk messages left by members of College Republicans, administrators banned all chalking on campus, ostensibly to preserve political neutrality.
University of Southern California, CA – A professor published an op-ed in HuffPost calling Trump’s views “fascist” and asserting that his supporters are the “least educated segment of the population.”
New York University, NY – The school’s Director of Medical Ethics co-authored an op-ed comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler based on his “racist rhetoric.”
Dartmouth College, NH – After refusing to allow Trump to speak on campus, claiming the venue is not open to political candidates, Hillary Clinton was permitted to hold a campaign event in the very same auditorium.
Pitzer College, CA – Even an incomplete Trump slogan was enough to trigger panic at Pitzer, where the phrase “Make America” prompted administrators to issue statements condemning the “hate filled message.”
University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, TN – A student senator faced calls for her resignation after colleagues learned that she had participated in pro-Trump chalkings on campus.
University of Kansas, KS – A former student senator took umbrage at Trump chalkings on campus, expressing outrage on social media after the university failed to condemn the messages sufficiently.
Emory University, GA – Student Government released a statement sympathizing with the “genuine concern and pain” caused by pro-Trump chalkings, after which students held a rally to voice their “fear.”
St. Mary’s College, CA – Vandals repeatedly defaced Trump bumper stickers on one student’s car, scribbling over Trump’s name in one instance and covering it with a “Hitler” decal in another.
Tulane University, LA – Fraternity boys built a “Trump wall” out of sandbags in front of their frat house, on private property, football players came in and tore it down.
