NORFOLK, VA - Old Dominion University administrators are responding to banners hung up at an off-campus home. The signs read: "Rowdy and Fun. Hope your baby girl is ready for a good time," "Freshman daughter drop off" and "Go ahead and drop off mom too."
"At ODU, we foster a community of respect and dignity and these messages sickened us," said ODU spokeswoman Giovanna Genard. "Messages like the ones displayed yesterday by a few students on the balcony of their private residence are not and will not be tolerated. The moment University staff became aware of these banners, they worked to have them removed. At ODU, we foster a community of respect and dignity and these messages sickened us. They are not representative of our 3,000 faculty and staff, 25,000 students and our 130,000 alumni."
Administrators say they're investigating whether the people who live at the private residence are students.
