PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) " One of the top art schools in the U.S. is investigating after anti-Semitic graffiti made out of human waste was found in a gender-neutral bathroom.

WJAR-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2lQZ5oI ) that the Rhode Island School of Design told students the swastika was discovered over the weekend in a dormitory bathroom.

The college, known as RISD (RIZ'-dee), says in a statement that the level of "disrespect and vitriol is completely unacceptable." Public safety officials are investigating it as an act of vandalism and a hate crime.

The school says it has met with students on the dorm floor and has encouraged those with information to come forward.
