Sorority sign burned down

An act of vandalism has occurred as Sigma Gamma Rho’s sign advertising their Greek week in front of Hopper Hall was burned down early yesterday morning.
The white sign was between two palms tree and read “Sigma Gamma Rho Week Royal Comeback 2010.”
The president, junior art education major, Maria Vasquez, was sent a picture message at around 1:30 yesterday morning from a friend of hers at public safety.
“We were so shocked. It is one thing to tear it down, it’s another to burn it down,” Vasquez said.
This was SGRho’s big premiere after returning to the campus, Vasquez said.
“We were upset about it, but you can’t cry over spilled milk”, Vasquez said. “You have to keep going and make the best of the situation. This won’t affect the rest of the week.”
There will probably not be another sign made, due to the end of their Greek week approaching, but there are still signs advertising the remaining events, Vasquez said.
Vasquez also commented on some of the sisters being Resident Advisors and the fact that this was also a safety issue.
The fact that this was so close to Hopper and restaurants was very hazardous and a major safety issue, Vasquez said.
There is no current information about who committed this act.
VSU police have been alerted of this event and have filed a report, but were unable to comment.
