A bomb threat at Princeton University has led to a campus-wide evacuation. Several campus buildings were the target of the bomb threat according to Princeton officials.
On Princeton's website, students, professors and other officials were being asked to evacuate the campus and stay home until further notice. Princeton officials state, "There has been a bomb threat to multiple unspecified campus buildings. Please evacuate the campus and all University offices immediately and go home unless otherwise directed by your supervisor. Public Safety officers and Princeton Police will direct drivers leaving the campus and those without cars will be directed to evacuation sites."
Further details have yet to be established as Princeton officials ensure the safety of those currently on campus. The first notifications about multiple bomb threats were sent via email and texts at approximately 10:30 a.m. EDT, according to Twitter reports. Scott Bixby, Bloomberg News social media editor, notes Princeton's commencement was held last week, indicating many students may have already left campus for the semester.
