The Ogier Gardens was found vandalized on the Tuesday morning after the Florida v. Georgia tailgate last weekend. Someone kicked the gate in before they drew male genitalia, bongs and the words “Trump” were drawn benches and tables in the garden.

According to Kelly Smith, the student engagement lesion of the Ogier Gardens, a baby watermelon was destroyed and beer cans littered the garden.  

“It felt very rude, we like the garden to be a space for everyone and it was very disrespectful that they littered,” Smith said. “It doesn’t feel super welcoming when people are coming in and defacing our property.”

Since the incident, most of the vandalism has been cleaned with the exception of the drawing on the fan. No police report was filed regarding the incident.
