Penn State University officials say packets of information shine light on a possible hate group on Penn State’s University Park campus.

The Black Student Union first shared the photos Tuesday on Twitter, saying:

“This packet allegedly has the identities of multiple Nazis at Penn State University. @Pennstate, we are not comfortable nor accepting of these students and BSU would like to officially condemn this.”

The packets of information show 10 young men at the Nittany Lion Statue at Penn State, with a list of 10 names with the words, “The Nazis.”

No one has claimed responsibility for sharing these packets and accusing these men of being Nazis.

Our affiliate, WTAJ was able to obtain photos of this informational packet. The snapshots from the packet circulated around campus show swastikas with the words, “Penn State Nazis.”

The photos contain names and pictures of people accused of being Nazis. WTAJ has decided to blur the names and photos of these individuals.

Lisa Powers, the Senior Director of News and Media Relations at Penn State, has confirmed that the packets were posted in bathrooms in the HUB and in the Willard Building.

Here’s Penn State’s official statement:

There is no place for hate at Penn State. Thank you for bringing these abhorrent posters to our attention. We are removing them and we are looking into this.
