Ex-Student Phones In Threat Seeking to Cancel Quinnipiac Graduation

May 19, 2014

A student who had dropped out of Quinnipiac University called in bomb threats in a failed attempt to cancel commencement so her family wouldn't learn that she hadn't attended classes, The New Haven Register reported. University officials moved the ceremony for the College of Arts and Sciences to a different location after the threats were phoned in by the former student, who later told police that she had "panicked" when her relatives did not see her name among the listed graduates. She was charged with threatening and falsely reporting an incident.
