University bomb threats?

This morning, I opened my email to find this message from the Pepperdine Public Relations Office:

Subject: Possible Threat

You may have seen or heard this week that a number of colleges and universities across the country have received bomb threats via email, none of which have yet to be determined as credible. This morning, Seaver College also received an email bomb threat. While at this time there is no indication that this is a credible threat, we take any threat to the University community seriously. Law enforcement authorities have been alerted and we are taking appropriate steps to insure the safety of the Malibu campus.

As always, please be aware of your surroundings and report any suspicious packages or persons to the department of Public Safety immediately at 310-506-4441.

Wondering if there were any threats made to any of the other local universities???

  1. I heard a quick sound blurb this morning that several universities and colleges got some sort of threat but it wasn’t deemed credible and the places weren’t named. Hope that helps, no time here to dig more into it.

  2. I think this is in response to something at Colorado-Boulder. But I might be misremembering the news item I heard.

  3. I’m a graduate student at CU Boulder. During the first few hours of the first day of school, a poor freshman got his throat slashed by a psych case who strolled onto campus and claimed he had a bomb. Very unusual incident for the Boulder Bubble. If it can happen here, it can happen anywhere.
