The threats have interrupted classes and forced students to evacuate dormitories in the middle of the night while officials sweep buildings for bombs. The university has locked doors and instituted bag searches and ID checks for some buildings. University and local police, the FBI, and the region's Joint Terrorism Task force are investigating.
