Auburn University Classes Resume after Threat of Violence on Campus

Students at Auburn University are headed back to class today after a threat shut the campus down. A university spokesman said that classes are resuming normally Thursday and that employees will be back at work. Dining facilities and other locations at the campus will also open back up today reprots CSMonitor.

Classes were cancelled Wednesday after a message was found in a restroom on campus threatening violence. The violence was threatened to happen in the letter on the anniversary of the Virginia Tech massacre.

The threat of violence quickly spread across social media leading to the campus shutdown. Shutting down a campus with 25,000 students is no easy task. Officials at the university treated the threat as genuine. Police at the university don’t think there was any danger from the threat, but officials decided to suspend classes anyway out of caution.

So far, there is no word on any leads in the investigation into who might have left the letter. The Virginia Tech massacre happened on April 16, 2007. There were 33 deaths including the shooter and 23 non-fatal injuries. Out of the 23 non-fatal injuries, 17 were form gunfire.

The University was right to postpone classes until the threat passed. If they had a threat like that, held classes, and something happened the world wouldn’t forgive the mistake. The shooter in the Virginia Tech massacre was Seung-Hi Cho. The shooter had been declared mentally unsound and had been able to buy weapons anyway.
