Which campus are they talking about?

There's been a rash of violent burglaries on the DU campus lately. It's a problem; this is normally a pretty safe urban campus in a pretty safe city. So people are freaking out. The buildings on campus are plastered with a police sketch that's incredibly vague. But that still doesn't explain this:

Denver police have issued a description of one suspect who may be responsible for at least four of the break-ins. They're looking for a black male about 6 feet tall, "with a medium to light skin complexion, wearing a dark-colored hooded sweat shirt."

But on and around a diverse campus, [student Jason] Friend said, "it's so vague it could fit 90 percent of the population."

Huh? Has anyone looked at the campus' diversity statistics lately? It's just below the multiracial citadels of Amherst and Brandeis.
