The University at Albany has offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for putting graffiti on at least a dozen columns of the academic podium at the campus, an apparent response to the administration’s decision to cancel Fountain Day in light of last month’s fracas.
The writing read: “Did you know 99 percent of UAlbany students were NOT part of the Kegs N’ Eggs riot but were punished for it.”
About 40 people were charged in the March 12 incident after they were fighting and jumping on cars and damaging property in the Pine Hills neighborhood.
University spokesman Karl Luntta confirmed the investigation by university police and said crews were scrubbing off the graffiti this afternoon.
“The university does not condone vandalism. We encourage our students to focus their energy and provide feedback on the channels we have provided,” he said.
