ELON, NC (AP) -- Elon University says it is working to raise awareness of racial issues after remarks were made to two students in the past week. The Times-News of Burlington reported that Elon President Leo Lambert met with about 2,500 students Tuesday to talk about the two on-campus incidents. Student Government Association executive president Sam Warren says he hopes students will learn of the incidents and be more aware of the problem. Lambert says a racial slur was yelled at a student last week from a car that passed dangerously close to her. No suspects have been identified. Racial slurs were also yelled at a student after Saturday's football game. Officials don't think that person who yelled was a student. Lambert also sent students an email on the topic Sunday.
