Online postings from a Baylor student’s Facebook page is causing quite a stir on campus and even prompting school officials to take action on those involved.

Pictures from a Mexican-themed party have landed a few Baylor students in hot water with their school.

The pictures posted on to Facebook last month depict at least five girls dressed in mustaches, ponchos and what appears to be dirt rubbed on their faces.

Another image depicts the girls jumping over a wall poking fun at illegal immigration.

Baylor views students as direct representatives of the school and told KWKT there is no place for any form of racism at Baylor.

“We can tell you with absolute certainty that we are a very strong, very active, and very inclusive academic community with a very strong Christian tradition," said Lori Fogleman, Baylor spokesperson.

"We don’t tolerate racism of any kind on our campus.”

Baylor has identified the students and is investigating the incident.

They have yet to determine whether a punishment, if any, will be given.
