The University of the South in Sewanee, TN is working to identify students who leveled racial epithets at members of the visiting Emmanuel College men’s lacrosse team during a game.
In a letter posted on the school’s website, University of the South Vice Chancellor and President Reuben E. Brigety II said some of the school’s students who attended Saturday’s game hurled “appalling epithets directed at people of color” at the Emmanuel team.
After the game, Brigety apologized to Emmanuel’s team for the students’ behavior.
