A Chicago college student, who claimed hateful notes mentioning Donald Trump were left on her door last week, is no longer enrolled at the school.

The incident happened at North Park University in the Albany Park section of the city, which is known for its diversity as an “immigrant gateway community.”

Senior Taylor Volk, who is openly bisexual, reported last week that she became the target of hate mail. A note with disgusting, harassing and threatening language was posted on her door.


“Back to hell,” it said with the hashtag “Trump”.

Volk also posted pictures of notes with homophobic slurs to her Facebook account.

When Volk was interviewed for an earlier story on NBC5, she said: “I think that those who have those feelings have been emboldened by this election, so that’s pretty serious.”

Volk said, at the time the original story aired on Nov 15, that she was convinced it was someone on the close-knit campus that targeted her.

However, when Chicago police looked into it, they said they could not find any report about the incident.

In a statement issued by the university on Tuesday, it said the notes were “fabricated.”

President David Parkyn said in a statement: “We are confident there is no further threat of repeated intolerance to any member of our campus community stemming from this recent incident.”
