The class wall mural located across from the Mail and Copy Center at Rothwell was vandalized over the weekend.

Last year’s graduating class, the class of 2013, was dubbed the “fierce class.” As such, the massive slogan written amidst the messages they left behind at the end of last year read “F13RCE class of 2013.”

Senior Paint Day, an event that takes place near the end of every academic year, is a Mills College tradition. The graduating class  gathers together for an afternoon and is given free rein to decorate the entire wall with messages ranging from names to wishes to inside jokes. The result is a legacy that remains up for a year after the graduating class departs Mills, when the wall is painted over with white paint for the next class to leave their mark.

Letters and numbers in the message were painted over with red and white paint.

The defaced title now reads “FART ass of 2013.” The letters “C” and “L” of the word “class” were blotted out with off-white paint, and the word “F13RCE” was modified with both red and white paint.
