A parent on a Monday admissions tour at Colorado State University called campus police because she was nervous when two young Native American men joined the tour, according to a letter sent out by CSU.

Police responded to the call by contacting the young men, who were visiting from New Mexico. Campus police spoke with the students, confirmed they were part of the tour and told them they could rejoin the group.

But the tour guide was unaware that police had been called or that they had responded, according to the letter, so the tour group had moved on without the students. They returned to Ammons Hall briefly, then left campus to return home to New Mexico.

“This incident is sad and frustrating from nearly every angle, particularly the experience of two students who were here to see if this was a good fit for them as an institution,” according to the letter, which was signed by Vice President for Enrollment and Access Leslie Taylor, Vice President for Diversity Mary Ontiveros and Vice President for Student Affairs Blanche Hughes.
