MANHATTAN — Kansas State officials say an anti-gay slur was found outside the university’s student union, the latest in several vandalism incidents targeting diversity at the school.

The slur was found Monday and was removed that afternoon.

The anti-gay vandalism occurred the same week some vandalized a temporary dwelling erected outside a residential complex for the Jewish harvest festival Sukkot.

Pat Bosco, dean of students and vice president for student life, said campus police are investigating.

The K-State Collegian reports that in September, white supremacist fliers were found on campus. And in May, a noose was found hanging from a campus tree.
