(CBS) OBERLIN, Ohio - Classes at Oberlin College were cancelled Monday after a report surfaced early Monday morning that a person was wearing a KKK outfit on campus, CBS affiliate WOIO reports.

"The report was from a student who saw a person walking who appeared to have what looked like a white robe and white hood," said Scott Vargo, a college spokesperson, according to Cleveland.com.

According to WOIO, this is not the first hate-related incident the campus has experienced in the past several months. Students say there have been flyers posted around campus degrading African Americans and homosexuals recently, the station reports.

This morning's incident remains under investigation.

Oberlin is a small northern Ohio liberal arts college located about 45 minutes from Cleveland.
