All buildings on campus reopen following bomb threat

Grambling State University has re-opened all buildings following the investigation of a bomb threat on campus.

The campus was partially shut down after students were notified by the university’s alert system of a possible bomb threat in Grambling Hall at 4:13 p.m. Students and faculty were advised to evacuate building and areas within 300 feet of Grambling Hall.

While campus security was investigating the threat, all classes were cancelled for the rest of the day. Campus police then closed all traffic to Founder’s Avenue/ Main Street until the investigation was completed. Students were told to use Central Avenue and Main Street to pick up meals from the cafeteria during this time.

The Black Nativity Play scheduled to take place in the Performing Arts Center was not cancelled.
