summary
The objects weren’t nooses; after an investigation, they were determined to be “remnants of paper lanterns” leftover from a previous event. "But despite the ongoing investigation at the time — to determine what the objects were — UD’s acting president Nancy Targett wasted no time with a statement: “We are both saddened and disturbed that this deplorable act has taken place on our campus.

We condemn this despicable action and ask everyone in our community to stand together against intolerance and hate.”"
