A sticker from the political group Hundred-Handers, now torn, was placed on a pole outside the Main Building.

The sticker appears to be from the organization Hundred-Handers, a right-wing political group that operates through social media. The group derives its name from Greek mythology.

On its Twitter page, the organization describes itself as “entirely anonymous international network of activists.” It operates through a top-down approach where a leader, referred to as the “Head,” distributes stickers featuring political slogans to its group members, known as “Hands.”

It remains unknown who placed the sticker on the post.

In an email, University spokesman Dennis Brown said The Observer alerted the administration to the presence of the sticker. The origin of the sticker is not currently under investigation, he added.
