Even if it were "just" vandalism, it's property damage on a scale that it will change the face of Auburn's campus...ie. Samford Hall to Toomer's corner-the place where graduation pictures are taken and marriages performed will be defaced... this isn't just like keying a car even if this idiot act didn't also impact the environment.
Experts on the subject have said that none of those things are really a concern.
For me, a crime is a crime. Terrorism is just a silly adjective to describe things we already know are wrong. Committing a criminal act of any kind shouldn't need the added "terrorism" label slapped on.
He vandalized property. He should be punished for that. Not as some environmental terrorist.
