A University of South Carolina student has been suspended after a photo surfaced on social media of her listing “n—gers,” among other things, as a reason the school’s Internet connection works improperly, President Harris Pastides said Friday, according to The State.

The student, an unnamed white female, is captured in a photo writing the list on a white board. Besides the racial slur, the list includes “incompetent professors, ratchets, overpopulated campus and parking” woes, the report notes.


Although USC has not identified the woman in the photo, her name was shared in social media posts that included many angry comments about the slur and the student, the report notes.

“Today, the unfortunate and disappointing act of a student in a study room has challenged the Carolina community to reflect on our values and tell the world what we believe,” Pastides said in a statement. “Racist and uncivil rhetoric have no place at the University of South Carolina.”
