OBERLIN, Ohio-- It's a normal day of classes Tuesday at Oberlin College, but what happened on campus recently has students feeling anything but normal.

"It's hard because it's not something you would expect on Oberlin's campus," said Gabriel Moore, student.

Students are shaken after someone was reported wearing a Ku Klux Klan-type hood and robe on campus early Monday morning.

"Everyone is quiet. They are going around trying to make it a normal day.  But everyone is just scared," added Sarah Pellington, student.

Monday, the school canceled classes, following a string of recent hate-filled incidents that have been reported over the past month.

"Everybody is just kind of nervous. But we are standing together as a community and that's a beautiful thing," said Victoria Davis, student.

The incident happened on the southern end of campus, near the African Heritage House.

The Heritage House, along with several other departments, remained open Tuesday so that students could go there and voice their fears and concerns.

In fact, noted Oberlin alum, Lena Dunham, the creator and star of HBO's Girls, took to her Twitter account to support the school.

She tweeted, "Hey Obies, remember the beautiful, inclusive and downright revolutionary history of the place you call home. Protect each other."

Still no arrests have been made.
