Princeton University reopened the campus Tuesday evening after evacuating for eight hours due to a bomb threat. A statement from the university said: "The university received a phone call from someone who said multiple bombs were placed throughout campus at unspecified locations. After determining that the threat was credible, university officials ordered the campus evacuated. Faculty and staff were sent home; students were told to go to public places in the town of Princeton, including the Princeton Public Library, the Princeton Arts Council and the Nassau Inn.... Bomb-sniffing dogs were brought in from law enforcement agencies and searched campus in a coordinated effort with university staff members. No explosive devices were found. The university takes all threats to the safety and well being of its community members and visitors seriously."
The University of New Hampshire also received and investigated a bomb threat Tuesday, but did not evacuate, and determined that the threat was a hoax.
