Campus Lockdown Official Report

Earlier this evening, our staff was notified by a student who had witnessed from her residence hall window an altercation between two individuals. It was reported that one person may have pointed what was described as a handgun at the other individual.

Based on the report, the University's emergency protocols were put in motion. The campus was put on lock-down as law enforcement from three separate agencies swept the campus.

Once the investigation was complete and the campus secure, students were given the all clear. We greatly appreciate the work of our staff, campus safety officers, and local law enforcement. Thank you to our students who responded swiftly and cooperatively.

Our residence life staff is available to answer questions and address student concerns.
