COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) _ No charges will be filed after an incident at Texas A&M University in which black high school students touring campus reported hearing racial slurs and taunts.
The university said Wednesday that police have concluded their investigation into a Feb. 9 incident.

Students from a southwest Dallas high school said a Texas A&M student approached them and asked them to look at her Confederate flag earrings. Other white students reportedly shouted “Go back where you came from” and used a slur.

Texas A&M President Michael K. Young says one student has left the university. Young declined to say whether he expelled the student or if any others face disciplinary action.

All incoming students will now attend mandatory diversity seminars, one of several changes in response to the incident.
