Swastikas were spray-painted onto the home of a historically Jewish fraternity at Emory University in Atlanta over the weekend.
The graffiti was discovered early Sunday, shortly after Yom Kippur Saturday evening, according to the university. Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the Jewish calendar.
"This abhorrent act will not be tolerated and does not reflect the values of the Emory University community," a university statement said.
Campus police officers are investigating and will increase their patrols in the area. School officials will also meet with student leaders to determine any next steps, the university said.
Alpha Epsilon Pi prides itself on "developing leadership for the Jewish community," according to the national organization. The Emory chapter has been active since 1920 and in 2012, it had 68 members.
