OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) -- Ole Miss Chancellor Dan Jones says an investigation is underway into an election protest overnight on the school's campus.
School officials confirm campus police were notified around midnight of comments on Twitter about students gathering at the student union to protest the results of Tuesday's elections.
Officers responding say they found 30 to 40 students, but over the next few minutes the crowd grew to nearly 400 students.
The crowd was ordered to disperse by university police, but apparently 100 students gathered later at a residence hall.
Officers again responded to break up the crowd, but made two arrests, one for public intoxication and one for failure to comply with police officers.
In a statement Wednesday morning, Jones says "the campus is quiet and safe this morning for all our students."
He says there were no reports of injuries or property damage.
Jones says campus police have confirmed reports of the use of racial language by some people.
He says the school's leadership "condemns this kind of behavior and is embarrassed that any students associated with the university would use this kind of language."
Jones says the university creed calls for "the respect of each individual and for fairness and civility."
He says the investigation will be thorough and those found to be in violation of the law will be referred to the appropriate authorities.
Jones says those found in violation of university policy will be dealt with through the student process.
The statement closes by saying Ole Miss "acknowledged throughout this year of fifty years of racial integration at our university, despite evidence of progress, we still live in an imperfect world. All of us in the University community must recommit ourselves to condemn hate and to continue our work to assure our university is a safe and welcoming place for every individual every day."
