Syracuse, N.Y. - Syracuse University is beefing up security on campus and shutting down fraternity activities.
The school says the move is in reaction to several recent racial incidents. Over the weekend, all social activities for fraternities were suspended for the rest of the semester after a female African-American student was verbally abused with racist language. School officials say they've identified the people they believe are responsible for that incident and say they'll be punished.
Racist graffiti has also been found in several locations on campus. A benefactor is staking $50,000 as a reward for information leading to arrests in the graffiti incidents.
