Some students at St. Louis University say they want to stand against racism, after two acts of hate on campus in two weeks.

Hundreds of students attended a vigil Sunday night to respond to the acts and urge campus officials to take action.

Two weeks ago, someone placed candles in the shape of a swastika on campus. On Saturday night, someone posted an obscenity-filled message that included “Nazis rule” on a big screen inside the Busch Student Center after a concert.

KSDK-TV reports campus officials say a disciplinary hearing is set for the students believed to be responsible for making the swastika. The weekend incident is still under investigation.
