The brothers of Sigma Pi at Cornell came back from the Christmas break to discover that their house had been vandalized with graffiti over the holidays. They weren’t the only ones to fall victim to vandalism, either. It seems that our perpetrator hit other spots on campus as well.
From the Ithaca Voice:
“Cornell won’t save you,” was written in red paint at Baker War Memorial Flagpole and at a bus stop by Risley Hall. A black hammer and sickle were found painted on a statue of Andrew Dickson White — the university’s first president — and red symbols were on Goldwin Smith Hall pillars behind the statue.
More graffiti on Sigma Pi Fraternity at 730 University Ave. states “Kill your rapist,” and depicts a guillotine where “Off with your heads,” is written.
And here is the picture of their house:

This sounds like a classic story of a headcase who 1) is trying to “stick it to the man” with their hateful messages spread across campus and 2) hates fraternities so much that they lump everyone into the whole “rapist” category.
Sigma Pi’s president said that they believe two men were involved after reviewing the footage from their house security camera. He also mentioned that they have put a tarp over it as of now and will re-paint over it as soon as possible. Since spring rush has started for Cornell, we hope that this incident doesn’t deter potentials from joining.
At this time, the police do not have any suspects..
