Three Quinnipiac students have been arrested for charges that include disorderly conduct, intimidation, and harassment in connection with hate speech left on dorm room doors and harassing phone calls directed to several black student-athletes, the Chronicle reports.

The messages were left on the doors last week, which prompted school officials to send out a campus-wide E-mail over the weekend. Then the same victims received several racially charged and threatening phone calls on Monday.

Since the beginning of the week, the university has held an open forum to discuss the events of the week, while students have publicly rallied against the incidents.

All three students have been dismissed from the university.
