Threat Leads University to Start Fall Break a Day Early

October 7, 2014

The University of North Alabama is starting its fall break on Thursday, a day earlier than planned, due to a threat to the campus. A threat found last week said that four people would die on campus on Thursday. A statement from the university said: "UNA President John Thornell said cancelling classes and closing campus a day early will not make the threat go away, but it sends a message that the university takes threats seriously and our first priority is the safety of our students, faculty and staff."
