The college has said there are no complaints of physical violence and that officials will continue to investigate the reports.

The statement also read:

"Dartmouth is committed to the principles of free speech, public protest, and inclusivity and understands that these ideals may sometimes conflict with one another; however, the safety, well-being, and support of all Dartmouth students remain our highest priorities."

The Dartmouth College newspaper said that despite spewed profanities after the protest, the first protest was not violent.
