Nazi Symbols Discovered on Florida College Campus

Two antisemitic symbols were found drawn on stalls in a University of North Florida bathroom this week, university police said.

They were drawn on the stalls beneath “pro-Palestine language,” UNF Police Chief Frank Mackesy told Jacksonville Today. One was found Monday and another Wednesday. 

Mackesy declined to comment on whether police had suspects, but he said the matter is an active investigation. UNF President Moez Limayem released a campuswide email Friday afternoon announcing the incident and said police are “actively and aggressively” investigating.

The president emphasized that the university would fight acts of antisemitism and “bigotry of any kind, to the fullest extent of the law.”

“I want to remind everyone of our commitment to our values of civility and a culture of care, which we expect from all who learn and work here or visit our campus. We want to ensure that all students, faculty, staff and guests feel safe and welcome at UNF, and I want you to know you have my support and the support of this University behind you,” he wrote.
