Students at the Atlanta school said they were worried to see the messages written across the sidewalks and buildings.
President of the university Jim Wagner said on Tuesday that the students felt intimidated by the messages. Protests followed soon after the students wrote to him and criticised the authorities' response.
While the administrators were looking to find out who were responsible for the messages, some advised the students to grow up. Even counselling was offered to the students after markings were seen on the campus.
Wagner also added that the institution's body on freedom of expression was trying to find out whether those who are responsible for the chalk remarks did it in compliance with the university's policy, a Daily Mail report said.
Emory's student newspaper named The Wheel said Wagner laid out four steps for the administrators to take to address the issues raised by the protesters.
Trump, a real-estate mogul who has put everybody behind in the race for the Republican Party's presidential nomination for the November general elections, won the Georia primary on Super Tuesday on March 1.
