Dear Campus Community,
To follow up on the alerts you’ve received this morning, law enforcement officials are on campus, and, on the advice of law enforcement, the KCC has reopened.
The College was notified this morning of a potential threat to campus safety and acted immediately, as the safety of students, faculty and staff is BC’s highest priority. The threat arrived in the form of a Yik Yak post and was specific as to the KCC and a time. (For those unfamiliar with Yik Yak, it’s an “anonymous” social media app.) Sheriff’s Office, State Police and the FBI are currently working to identify the person who posted the threat. Once identified, the person will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
I apologize for the inconvenience, but this morning’s precautions were unavoidable. The College asks that members of the campus community remain alert and keep an eye out for odd or suspicious behavior.
