Kalamazoo College President Eileen Wilson-Oyelaran says the past few weeks at the college have "quite tumultuous." She says threats that included hate speech made people feel unsafe at the college. "It was simply horrible."

KALAMAZOO, MI - In the six months since he moved from Bangalore, India, to enroll at Kalamazoo College, Tanush Jagdish said he has found the campus to be one that is inclusive, a good learning environment for an international student. But Jagdish said that all changed for him late Tuesday as he learned of a racist, anti-Semitic Internet posting that included a threat to shoot faculty at the school.

Kalamazoo College officials in an email Wednesday said a "highly inflammatory" online posting included a threat of "systematically executing faculty." Police don't believe the person who posted it on a student commission web document is connected with campus or will follow through, but security has been increased.
