“A bomb threat has been reported on the LSU Campus. Please evacuate as calmly and quickly as possible. Check lsu.edu for updates. LSUEOC,” the alert reads in a red strip across the top of the school’s website.

Students were also warned by a central texting program. A text alert was sent at 11:32 a.m.

Last Friday, bomb threats were called into both the University of Texas in Austin and North Dakota State in Fargo received. The threats prompted both campuses to be evacuated, but no explosives were found at either school.
