The University of Connecticut has launched an investigation into racist social media posts made by current and incoming students.

UConn President Thomas Katsouleas announced the investigation via Twitter.

It is not yet known if admission to the university will be revoked, but Katsouleas says that the students under investigation will not be allowed to enroll until they have been cleared.
