Fordham students condemn series of bias attacks

THE BRONX - Students at Fordham University are calling for action after a series of alleged hate crimes on their campus.

According to school officials, there have been three bias attacks in less than one month. The most recent incident happened last Friday when a janitor discovered a racial slur in a Goupil Hall bathroom.

The first incident happened in early February when the "N" word was found scrawled on a dorm room door in Walsh Hall. A homophobic slur was found on a stairwell at the Lincoln Center campus soon after.

The university says campus security is investigating each incident, but many students say they're frustrated that the school hasn't called on the NYPD to help.

A student body rally is planned for later this week.
