The University has identified the individual who placed an extension cord tied as a noose in a campus residence hall, according to Campus Safety and Security.
The noose — which is often seen as a racist symbol in the U.S. — was found Wednesday in the common area of a campus residence hall, according to a tweet from Campus Safety and Security.
The University said it does not comment on individual conduct matters, and that "any policy violations will be addressed through the appropriate channels."

"A noose is linked to racial violence in our nation. Intolerance, intimidation and threatening behavior have no place on Auburn's campus," Campus Safety and Security said in a tweet on Wednesday. "We condemn this action as antithetical to the values of the Auburn Family."
