One of four North Carolina State University students who admitted painting racially-charged graffiti has apologized.
The News & Observer of Raleigh reported that Wednesday's apology came before the student senate voted for a resolution condemning the graffiti. It was painted in the school's Free Expression Tunnel a day after the election.
The student has not been publicly identified. But the newspaper reported he said he's sorry for the anger and fear at the school and for putting it in a bad light.
The three other students expressed remorse in a written statement released by a school spokesman Wednesday.
Chancellor James Oblinger said the student who accepted primary
responsibility will participate in diversity training and will be assigned community service.
