COLUMBIA — For the second time in eight days, MU’s Strickland Hall was the target of graffiti, building coordinator Jennifer Arnold said.
The graffiti, first reported to MU police on Wednesday, is similar to what was left in a separate incident on Feb. 5, Arnold said.
The graffiti tags could be seen Thursday along the walls in the north and south stairwells, and two more tags were found on benches outside classrooms on the first floor.
Maintenance crews were called in to paint over the markings. The damage will take at least 12 hours to clean up, said Brian Hanlon, part of the crew responsible for the job.
Emergency workers were called in to turn off fire alarms in the building to keep the paint fumes from setting them off.
