Four white nationalist stickers found on campus

By Kiaya Wilson

Four stickers from the white nationalist group Patriot Front were found on Western’s campus on Monday, Sept. 30.

Three of the stickers were scratched off by the time University Police found them.

One sticker was found near the Wade King Student Recreation Center, one was found between the Fine Arts Building and Engineering Technology building, one was found on the Garden Street side of the Viking Union and one was found on a light pole by Parks Hall.

A Campus Advisory was sent out at 3:13 p.m.. The advisory stated hate is not tolerated on campus and Western “strongly condemns” the beliefs of Patriot Front.

As noted in the advisory, we encourage members of the campus community to notify the university if they see more of these stickers posted on campus,” Paul Cocke, director of communications and marketing for Western, said in an email.

According to the advisory, University Police have begun an investigation into this incident.
